  • PHD Thesis Proposal (John Francis)

    Thu, Feb 09, 2023 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Computer Science

    University Calendar


    PhD Candidate: John Francis
    Date: 02/09/23 (Thursday)

    Committee: Mike Zyda, Carl Kesselman, Jernej Barbic, Scott Fraser, Kate White

    Abstract:

    The structural modeling of cells can be accomplished by integrating images of cellular morphology from multiple scales and modalities using a parts based approach. In this thesis, we demonstrate a method for combining the statistical distribution of structures from x-ray tomography and fluorescence microscopy using neural networks to predict the localization of high resolution components in low resolution modalities by using the single cell as a shared unit of transfer.

    Abstract:
    Historical maps provide rich information for researchers in many areas, including the natural and social sciences. These maps include detailed documentation of a wide variety of natural and human-made features, their spatial extent, their changes over time, their geo-names, and additional metadata. Analyzing map collections that cover the same region at different points in time can be labor-intensive even for a scientist, often requiring further grounding and linking with external sources to contextualize the data. With rapidly increasing amounts of digitized map archives, we require methods to convert these maps into a machine-processable and machine-readable semantic form and do so automatically, efficiently, and at scale. Unfortunately, existing techniques are limited and do not leverage the vast landscape of information extracted from archives of historical maps.
    In this thesis proposal, we investigate how to convert the extracted geo-data and metadata to a dynamic knowledge graph representation that captures the data semantics, how the data can be interrelated across entire datasets, and how it can be grounded to real-world phenomena by leveraging external resources on the web. We explore approaches that benefit from the open and connective nature of linked data that can produce a spatio-temporal, semantic, and contextualized output that follows linked data principles, and that can be easily extended with further availability of contemporary maps while supporting backward compatible access. Once materialized in a dynamic knowledge graph, the output can hold the data in a semantic network, making it readily shared, accessible, visualized, standardized across domains, and scalable for effortless use by downstream tasks for analysis and expressive integration over time and space.
