2024 Mini Summer Camp on Object Detection and Localization in Medical Images using Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Bldg: UPMC Shadyside - Floor 1, 5200 Center Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States, 15232, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/413071

Computer vision as a subfield of AI has been around for several years dealing with how computers can understand from digital images and video sequences. Advanced computer vision algorithms have already demonstrated successful applications in a variety of domains, including medical image interpretation, remote surgery, surveillance systems, security and biometrics, autonomous vehicles, and scene reconstruction, purposing to name a few. There is a list of fascinating problems in applied computer vision in medical imaging, with object detection and localization being one of the most interesting ones. Object detection and localization is now also widely associated with self-driving cars where automatic systems combine computer vision, LIDAR, and GPUs to generate a multidimensional representation of the road with all its participants. It is also commonly used in medical image analysis, video surveillance and monitoring, counting people for general statistics, and computationally analyze customer experience with walking patterns within shopping centers. In this summer school, you will learn -from scratch- how to use advanced computer vision algorithms to tackle the problem of object detection and localization in medical images. We will discuss object detection mechanism(s) in practice with several hands-on-practices starting from manual image annotation to programming and implementation in Python. We, together, will explore what object detection computational vision algorithm is, what is does, and how. The current mini summer camp at the University of Pittsburgh is structured such that in addition to attending lectures, the students will be also working in teams on a project assignment. Topics included but not limited to: - Introduction to Computer Vision - Introduction to Deep Learning Computer Vision - Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) - Introduction to Object Detection and Localization in Computer Vision - Introduction to PyTorch - Manual Annotation of Medical Images using the LabelImg Toolset - Sliding Windows and Bounding Boxes in Object Detection - Non-max Suppression - YOLO (You Only Look Once) and SSD (Single Shot Detector) 25 seats in-person and 25 seats virtual (Zoom) are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

IEEE-USA Livestream Webinar: R&D Tax Credits

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/409084

The IRS’ definition of R&D and industry’s definition of R&D differ. A large majority of R&D performed in the US is done in the private sector, rather than done by universities and the work that qualifies for R&D Tax Credits is much broader (and more lucrative) than you would think. The program that pays for this R&D work is the Research Tax Credit, which is administered by the IRS. This presentation, R&D Tax Credits for Engineers and Scientists, is a high level basic primer that will teach you what type of R&D work that you already do qualifies for the credit and the general steps required to present your work successfully to the IRS. Speaker(s): Richard Bernstein Agenda: IEEE-USA's free webinars/events are designed to help you find your next job, maintain your career, negotiate an appropriate salary, understand ethical considerations in the workplace and learn about other career-building strategies and public policy developments that affect your profession.
