Voreen

Voreen is an open source rapid application development framework for the interactive visualization and analysis of multi-modal volumetric data sets. It provides GPU-based volume rendering and data analysis techniques and offers high flexibility when developing new analysis workflows in collaboration with domain experts. The Voreen framework consists of a multi-platform C++ library, which can be easily integrated into existing applications, and a Qt-based stand-alone application. It is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License. More...

Distance-preserving vector space embedding for generalized median based consensus learning

Learning a consensus object from a set of given objects is a core problem in machine learning and pattern recognition. One example is text recognition, where the use of different algorithms or parameters result in different recognized texts. Consensus learning would result in one text which hopefully includes less errors than each single result.

One method to calculate this result is generlized median calculation. The generalized median of a set of objects is a new object which has the smallest sum of distances to all objects in the set. The calculation of the generalized median is often NP-Hard, for example using strings with the string edit distance. Therfore, approximative solutions are needed. More...

Barista - A Graphical Tool for Designing and Training Deep Neural Networks

Barista is an open-source graphical high-level interface for the Caffe deep learning framework written in Python. While Caffe is one of the most popular frameworks for training DNNs, editing prototxt files in order to specify the net architecture and hyper parameters can become a cumbersome and error-prone task. Instead, Barista offers a fully graphical user interface with a graph-based net topology editor. More...

Vampire - Variational Algorithm for Mass-Preserving Image REgistration

Vampire is a mass-preserving image registration approach. Our main area of application is motion correction in gated positron emission tomography (PET) of the human heart. Intensity modulations caused by the highly non-rigid cardiac motion are considered by means of a mass-preserving transformation model. Vampire is highly robust against noise due to hyperelastic regularization and leads to accurate and realistic motion estimates. More...
