Our guest speaker Norman Rzepka from Scalable Minds, will be talking about “Annotation techniques for large-scale Volume EM datasets”.
For many Machine Learning-based image analysis methods, the availability of high-quality ground truth data is still a necessity. In this talk, I will present some popular annotation techniques for volumetric electron microscopy (EM) datasets to obtain training or evaluation data. In the first part, the talk will cover different methods and tools to make dense volume annotations more efficient. The second part will be about collaborative workflows including quality control. The third part will cover sparse annotation apporaches that offer higher throughput than dense methods.
