CWI PhD student Linda Plantagie of the Computational Imaging research group has introduced a new algebraic filter for the use of reconstructing X-Ray images. Linda Plantagie will defend her thesis 13 April at Leiden University.
A team of Dutch scientists has built a supercomputer the size of four pizza boxes. The Little Green Machine II has the computing power of 10,000 PCs and will be used by researchers in oceanography, computer science, artificial intelligence, financial modeling and astronomy. CWI researchers Joost Batenburg and Kees Oosterlee, who were part of the development team, will use the machine for computational imaging and machine learning for time series respectively. The computer is based at Leiden University (the Netherlands) and developed with help from IBM.
In January 2017, ERCIM News No. 108 was published: http://ercim-news.ercim.eu/en108. It features a special theme on Computational Imaging, coordinated by guest editors Joost Batenburg (CWI) and Tamas Sziranyi (MTA SZTAKI).
PhD student Daniël Pelt of CWI has developed new algorithms for computer tomography (CT) for fast computation of high-quality three-dimensional images. This increases the practical use of this technology in areas such as material sciences and biomedical research.
Researcher Joost Batenburg of CWI has been awarded a Vici grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for his proposal 'Real-Time 3D Tomography'. With the 1.5 million euro grant, Batenburg can develop his own research line in the next five years.
