Projects

I am involved (and I have been involved) in different research projects related to medical imaging and remote sensing image analysis.

On going projects

SHADES

ANR SHADES (2014-2017)

Involvement : Member (22 %)

Funding : French Agence Nationale de le Recherche

The SHADES project is an interdisciplinary project on the security of documents combining experts from computer science and law. The objective of this project is to provide a new tool for authenticating a document through an advanced electronic signature in order to fight against fraud and falsification. Addressing the drawbacks of current solutions for hybrid document security, this signature, based on the document’s content and structure, will allow recognizing and authenticating a document independent from its physical representation as long as its content and/or structure have not been modified. Thanks to a hashing of the document’s information during the signature computation, no information from the original document will be deduced from its signature alone. This will be completed by a study on the legal position of this technology and its interest for legal professionals. The project will be conducted in collaboration with a trusted third party and an end user.

iCBIR

Project France-Stanford - iCBIR (2014-2015)

Involvement : Co-Principal Investigator

Funding : France-Stanford Collaborative Projects

The goal of the iCBIR project ("Interactive Content-Based Image Retrieval for real-time decision support in Radiology") is to conduct research activities centered on the development of innovative informatics tools that provide computer-based assistance to radiologists to enhance their image interpretation efficiency. Indeed a major challenge to effective Radiology practice is efficiently interpreting cross-sectional studies that contain thousands of images. This results in variability in Radiologist interpretive accuracy and suboptimal patient care. Our tools will assist radiologists by finding, within large image collections, images containing visually similar abnormalities and the associated diagnoses and, where available, responses to therapies. A key aspect of the work will be developing methods of Relevance Feedback to enable the system to continually improve the accuracy of relevant care retrieval during clinical use. We will undertake this work by establishing a collaboration between the Information Sciences in Imaging center (ISIS) at Stanford University, specializing in medical imaging, and the Computer Sciences Laboratory (LIPADE) at University Paris Descartes, possessing expertise in image analysis tools.

Coclico

ANR Coclico (since 2014)

Involvement : Associated partner

Funding : French Agence Nationale de le Recherche

The Coclico project ("COllaboration, CLassification, Incrementality and Knowledge") is a research project whose aim is to propose a generic method allowing multi-scale analysis of large volumes of spatio-temporal imaging data of variable quality and provided in continuous with remote sensing technologies over urban areas. It consists in studying and implementing an incremental multistrategy approach guided by knowledge. It must guarantee a final quality of the results by taking into account the quality of the data and those of knowledge. The Coclico project aims to develop automatic or semi-automatic methods, tailored to the complexity and rapid evolution of large masses of multi-source spatiotemporal data, relying on advanced methods from data mining and the machine learning for the analysis and monitoring of complex phenomena.

ePAD

ePAD (since 2012)

Involvement : Associated partner

Funding : National Institutes of Health (USA)

The ePAD project ("electronic Physician Annotation Device") is a medical imaging project launched at Stanford University School of Medicine in 2012 and supported by the National Institutes of Health [grant number U01CA142555-01]. Medical images contain a wealth of information, such as anatomy and pathology, which is often not explicit and computationally accessible. Information schemes are being developed to describe the semantic content of images, but such schemes can be unwieldy to operationalize because there are few tools to enable users to capture structured information easily as part of the routine research workflow. This projects aims at developing a Web-based semantic annotation tool for radiological images called ePad, an open source tool enabling researchers and clinicians to create semantic annotations that are used to characterize images for classification or image retrieval purpose. ePad enables to describe images and image regions using a graphical interface (developed with cutting-edge features of GWT-P and HTML5) that maps their descriptions to ontologies.

Past projects

Foster

ANR Foster (2011 - 2013)

Involvement : Involved as Phd student

Funding : French Agence Nationale de le Recherche

The FOSTER project ("Spatio-temporal data mining: application to the understanding and monitoring of soil erosion") is a three-year project launched in January 2011. This computer science project is founded by the French National Research Agency ANR. This project aims at providing to geologists a semi-automatic and complete process for monitoring soil erosion. This process will be based on multi-temporal very high resolution satellite images coupled with digital elevation model (DEM), sensor data and/or expert knowledge. The project will focus more precisely on two important aspects of this process: segmentation of satellite images based on collaborative methods, and construction of descriptive (patterns, clustering, ...) and predictive (decision trees, ...) spatio-temporal models.

FoDoMuSt

ACI Fodomust (2004 - 2008)

Involvement : Involved as Msc student

Funding : French Agence Nationale de le Recherche

The FoDoMuSt project ("Multi-Strategic Data Mining") is a four-year project launched in September 2004 and finished in September 2008. FoDoMuSt is a research project about multi-strategic data mining for extraction and characterisation of urban vegetation based on a database of remote sensing images. The main idea is to improve the result of one clustering on some data by using a set of clustering methods and making them collaborate. Multi-strategic clustering methods can then be used to generate thematic maps (with different clusters for different ground occupations/uses). The proposed collaborative approaches proposed during this project have been validated in the context of remote sensing images analysis, with the collaboration of the Laboratoire Image et Ville (UMR CNRS/UDS 7011).
