Young researchers’ workshop on

Statistics, Learning and Variational Methods in Imaging

 

20-21 September 2012, DAMTP, University of Cambridge (UK)

Scope:

We bring together young researchers with a variational background, statisticians and experts in learning theory to work on the following challenging topics:

- statistics of noise and its modelling

- modelling a-priori information

- learning the above from samples

- Bayesian and variational approaches
The workshop is setup as a combination of presentations from invited speakers and discussion rounds to drive an exchange between the participants from different research areas involved.
