ACVT Medical Imaging tech achieves 98% in FDA trials

From the LBT annual report: A ten-week pivotal clinical trial at TriCore Reference Laboratories in New Mexico during July and August 2015 tested APAS against a panel of microbiologists. Culture plates from 5,500 patients were processed by APAS and simultaneously assessed by a panel of independent qualified microbiologists. The results showed that APAS achieved over […]

A new Machine Learning result in Quantum Physics

John Bastian and Anton van den Hengel are among the authors of a new paper just published in Nature Scientific Reports. The paper describes a Machine Learning-based approach to generating Bose-Einstein Condensates (BECs).  One of the difficulties in generating BECs is the need to cool Rubidium ions down to 10^-9 degrees Kelvin.  This is achieved […]

We beat Google at ImageNet Detection

The ImageNet Object Detection results are out, and we did extremely well! We place 4th, behind Microsoft, Qualcomm, and Chinese University of Hong Kong, but ahead of Google, Intel, and Tencent. This is all the more impressive as we had a fraction of the computing resources of these competitors.

Great ImageNet Detection Results

Last week was the deadline for the ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Challenge (ILSVRC 2015) large-scale object detection task. This is the primary challenge for image-based object detection.  The challenge requires that you detect 200 classes of objects in a set of test images. For each image, algorithms must produce a set of annotations (ci,si,bi)of […]
