Financed projects

  • I was a team member of project 'Reusable Deep Neural Networks: applications to biomedical data' (2012-2015, 158k€) (PTDC/EIA-EIA/119004/2010), which was financed by the FCT. The main goal is to clarify the conditions under which a DNN can be reused. The coordinator is Luís Silva.
  • I was a team member of project 'NECOVID: Covert Negative Biometric Identification' (2010-2013, 87k€) (PTDC/EIA-EIA/103945/2008), which was financed by the FCT. The goal is to address the feasibility of an automated system that performs covert and reliable biometric recognition, using the iris as single trait. The coordinator is Hugo Proença.
  • I was the coordinator of the project 'BioRec - Non-Cooperative Multimodal Biometric Recognition' (2007-2011, 130k€) (PTDC/EIA/69106/2006), which was financed by FCT. The goal of the project was the development of a system for recognizing people at a distance without their cooperation, using iris and face (on the visible and infrared) detection and recognition techniques.
  • I was the coordinator of the project 'EntNets - Entropic neural networks for the analysis of medical data' (2005-2008, 77k€) (POSC/EIA/56918/2004), which was financed by FCT. The goal of the project was the development of neural networks using entropy as a cost function and their application to the analysis of medical data. Most of the team members were researchers at the Neural Network Interest Group (NNIG).
  • I was a team member of project 'COMBDEC - Combining Decisions. Application in Chest Radiograph Image Analysis' (POSI/SRI/35590/2000), which was financed by program PRAXIS XXI. I was the coordinator of the project at UBI. The goal of the project was the detection of pathologies in chest x-ray images. We used image processing and classifier combination techniques.
  • I was a team member of project 'Analysis ad Rendering of Images in Real and Virtual Setups' (financed by FCT) where I developed work in road traffic analysis from real-time video images. This work is included in my MSc thesis.



Teaching
