James Fishbaugh, a 2007 graduate of our CS Masters program, will visit with us on Monday, November 7th and give a talk from 12-1pm in room SS 362. James is currently in the CS Phd program at the University of Utah. The title and abstract of his research talk follows. Please join us!
Title: Continuous trajectories from discrete anatomical shapes
Abstract: The study of time dependent shapes is an emerging field in computational anatomy, with potential application to early brain development, aging studies, or the analysis of evolving pathologic structures. As longitudinal data becomes more widely available, the need for computer models of anatomical evolution becomes increasingly important. This talk will focus on highlighting current research in statistical shape analysis. Experiments on real anatomical data demonstrate the potential to further our understanding of developmental disabilities such as autism as well as neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s disease.
