One of our students gets the Best Student Paper Award at the 25th IEEE ICIP

Adrian Shajkofci, a PhD student in the Computational Bioimaging Group, co-advised by Michael Liebling and François Fleuret received a "Best Student Paper Award" at the 25th IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP), on October 9th 2018. This event is the world's largest and most comprehensive technical conference focused on image and video processing and computer vision. The 2018 theme was "Imaging beyond imagination".

The selected paper presents how to use the artificial intelligence method of convolutional neural networks to improve focus in optical microscopy. The approach implies a specific image processing technique called deconvolution.
