I'm currently supervising the following PhD candidates:
Current MSc projects
Adrian Storm-Johannessen and Sondre Fossen-Romsaas (2018—2020). Generative adversarial networks and medical image synthesis.
Sivert Stavland (2018—2020). Topic: Machine learning and electronic health records.
Sindre Eik de Lange and Stian Heilund (2017—2019). Autonomous mobile therapeutic robot. Using advanced computer vision techniques (graph convolutional neural networks), and the Robot Operating System, the project aims at developing a robotic physical therapist for patient rehabilitation. Sindre wrote a short article on Medium about some of their work here: A Beginner’s Tale of A First Computer Vision Project.
Sathiesh Kumar Kaliyugarasan (2017—2019). Transfer learning in medical imaging. A study of how to best use transfer learning when training deep neural networks for biomedical image analysis. His work so far was presented at NVIDIA's GTC Europe in Münich, October 2018.
Feel free to contact me if you're interested in doing a MSc project in machine learning.
Completed MSc projects
Sean Meling Murray (2017—2018). An Exploratory Analysis of Multi-Class Uncertainty Approximation in Bayesian Convolutional Neural Networks. Sean developing and explored new techniques for obtaining robust uncertainty estimates for deep neural networks. Thesis available: here. Went on to work at the Norwegian Computing Center: NR profile.
- Jon Einar Haraldsvik, Stian Gudvangen Gjerløw, Didrik Fanuelsen Tranvåg (2015). Tryg Maintenance App – A cross-platform application using Appcelerator Studio Cloud Services and Arrow DB. The students developed a cross-platform mobile application for Tryg Forsikring. The project was awarded "best bachelor project" at the department in 2016. The students went on to start Appivate AS.
Feel free to contact me if you're interested in doing a BSc project, preferably in machine learning.
- DAT259 – Medical data analysis and deep learning, spring 2019.
- ELMED219, spring 2019. ELMED219 is an elective course on computational medicine at the University of Bergen medical school. A collaboration between the Department of Biomedicine, University of Bergen, Department of Computing, Mathematics and Physics, Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, and Mohn Medical Imaging and Visualization Centre, Department of Radiology, Haukeland University Hospital. The course is offered to both medical students and engineering students and encourages collaborations between these disciplines, motivated by e.g. "The convergence revolution". Course website: ELMED219 @ MittUiB. Course code repository: https://github.com/MMIV-ML/ELMED219x
