Masters Thesis Presentation - Max Gefvert

Seminar - Linköpings universitet
Title: Automatic Segmentation of the Carotid Bifurcation using Region Growing and Support Vector Machines Description: Roughly 1 in 40 deaths worldwide are caused by strokes resulting from emboli that reach the brain from ruptured atherosclerotic plaques in the carotid artery. Segmentation of the carotid artery bifurcation in magnetic resonance imaging is necessary to enable further analysis. Unfortunately, this is a slow and difficult task that is often performed manually. Two segmentation methods, one based on Region Growing (RG), and one using Support Vector Machines (SVM), were implemented and evaluated for segmenting the carotid bifurcation in contrast-enhanced MR Angiograms (CE-MRA). Student: Max Gefvert Supervisor: Magnus Ziegler Examiner: Petter Dyverfeldt
14:00 - 16:00
Location: Tesla, CMIV

Higher Seminar - Wendy Espeland

Seminar - Department of Technology and Social Change
Valuing Universities: How Meida Rankings Change Education Wendy Espeland Professor at Northwestern University, Chicago Rankings express the status of universities as a specific number on a shared metric. This commensuration of quality renders status precise and relative. Each ranked university now bears a specific and public relationship to every other school; is linked to other schools in an explicit status system; and the ascent of one university requires the descent of others. As highly visible symbols of quality, rankings have changed how educators make decisions, allocate resources, and think about themselves and others. For these reasons, they are hard to control. Rankings make obvious a university’s standing and trajectory, with numbers that circulate easily, are enveloped in the authority of science, and seem easy to interpret. How do these new technologies of evaluation shape what goes on inside and around universities? Why are they so controversial? This talk will address these features of rankings and present research on their effects on higher education.

Algo-humanic recalibration in counting and accounting

Seminar - P6: Body, Knowledge, Subjectivity
This week we will discuss Lotta Björklund Larsen's text. This paper addresses what we call the algo-humanic recalibration in counting and accounting. Studying the recalibration is a way to understand what aspects are considered when, on the one hand, trusting the results that algorithms produce and, on the other, the decisions when ‘human’, tacit, knowledge takes over. Drawing on two very different empirical fields – quantified self technology and digital samples of taxpayers for audit – we aim to raise the gaze from the empirical specificities to propose more general insights about the practices and processes involved when choosing between results from counting and accounting calculations and the human experience/knowledge. Would you like to get access to the text? Please contact programme assistant Lisa Guntram, contact information below.
