The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded a Veni grant to CWI researcher Daniël Pelt the funding allows the researcher, who has recently obtained his PhD, to conduct independent research and develop their ideas for a period of three years. Daniël Pelt (Computational Imaging group) receives the VENI grant for his proposal titled "Learning algorithms for large 3D images". Accurate analysis of images is important in many fields. Learning algorithms can greatly improve analysis, but currently do not work well for large three-dimensional (3D) images. In this project, Pelt will develop new learning algorithms for large 3D images.
