After investigating the Internet of Things with classical data mining techniques and the TripAdvisor Data with Text Mining, we needed a meetup about Image Analytics. Image Analytics indeed complements traditional data mining and text processing. For this meetup we were so fortunate to have exceptional speakers on the image analytics topics.
This meetup is scheduled to precede the Society for Biomolecular Imaging and Informatics conference (http://www.sbi2.org/1st-annual-sbi2-meeting/).
Christian Dietz from the University of Konstanz - who is the lead developer of the KNIME Image Processing extension - will give an introduction into “Image Processing with KNIME”, and show use cases, examples and workflows to help you getting started.
Lee Kamentsky from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard – who is the lead developer of the CellProfiler software and a contributor to the ImageJ 2.0 project - will give a quick overview of the state of the art for image analytics techniques.
Have you noticed the change in the KNIME web site and logo? Have you noticed the “Open for Innovation” part of the brand? Have you read the motivations behind this new logo (http://www.knime.com/open-for-innovation )? Well, at this meetup, Michael Berthold, the KNIME CEO, will give you an overview of such changes and of the KNIME strategy.
As usual, for KNIME newbies, at 5pm just before the meetup starts, there will be a 45min crash tour highlighting the main KNIME features, including the new ones in KNIME 2.10. However, if you really want to know more about KNIME, you can sign up for the one day course on Sep 8th in Boston.
There will also be plenty of time for questions, discussions and informal chats over small bites and drinks. The meetup is free and open to all KNIME interested people!
