Piotr Chudzik will be attending ASDM’14

I am happy to say that I was accepted to the Advanced Statistics and Data Mining Summer School in Madrid organized by the Artificial Intelligence Department of the School of Computer Science of the University Politecnica de Madrid:

As per ASDM’14 website:

” It comprises intensive courses which aim to provide attendees with an introduction to both the theoretical foundations and the practical applications of some of the modern statistical analysis techniques currently in use. The summer school runs for 2 weeks and is divided into 12 courses. Each subject has theoretical classes as well as practical classes, in which each technique is put into practice with a computer program…The goals of this summer school are to complement the technical background of attendees in the field of data analysis and modelling…Note that the summer school is on advanced techniques and the courses will provide with the insight into modern techniques that, nearly by definition, are not mathematically trivial.”

Can’t wait to start attending classes!



Roberto Annunziata ESR 2.2 at the PhD symposium 2014 held in the Dundee’s School of Computing

The Symposium is an event organized by PhD students at Dundee University’s School of Computing, where all PhD students showcase their work and ideas in an informal, friendly setting.

This year, the Symposium student presentations took place in the Wolfson Theatre on the 20th and 21st of May, in the Queen Mother Building.

This has been a great experience and a good training for improving my presentation skills. In addition, I served as session chair, a useful chance to sit on the other side of the desk.

During my presentation, I introduced the REVAMMAD project to the audience, a mixture of PhD students, researchers and lecturers coming from all research areas of the School of Computing such as satellite systems and wearable technology, other than medical image analysis. Then I moved the discussion on my current project: “Tortuosity Classification of Corneal Nerve Images”, in collaboration with our clinical partners of the Harvard Medical School.

People looked interested and I encouraged questions and discussion.
