  • Introducing Soft Option-Critic for Blood Glucose Control in Type 1 Diabetes : Exploiting Abstraction of Actions for Automated Insulin Administration 

    Jenssen, Christian (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-07-15)
    Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease where the insulin-producing cells are damaged and unable to produce sufficient amounts of insulin, causing an inability to regulate the body's blood sugar levels. Administrating insulin is necessary for blood glucose regulation, requiring diligent and continuous care from the patient to avoid critical health risks. The dynamics governing insulin-glucose ...
  • Numerical and experimental investigation of absorbing polymer films suitable for boundary photoacoustic imaging 

    Salmi, Marte Helene Skogdahl (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-07-13)
    One of the main challenges in conventional photoacoustic methods, is that thin biological samples typically have low optical absorption in the visible region. Therefore, it is often necessary to stain or label the sample with a color which provide sufficient absorption for the laser wavelength used in the scanning system. Unfortunately, the labeling often introduce unwanted properties to the biological ...

  • Affinity-Guided Image-to-Image Translation for Unsupervised Heterogeneous Change Detection 

    Hansen, Mads Adrian (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-12-16)
    Change detection in earth observation remote sensing images can be used to describe the extent of natural disasters, e.g., forest fires and floods. When time is of the essence, the ability to utilize heterogeneous images is fundamental, i.e., images that are not directly comparable due to the sensors used or the capturing conditions. The recent advances in machine learning have dispersed into the ...
  • Investigating the effect of class-imbalance on convolutional neural networks for angiodysplasia detection 

    Kaspersen, Oskar Anstein (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-10-31)
    In this thesis, we look at a deep learning approach to AD detection and focus specifically on the problem of class imbalance, which arises from the fact that lesions only occupy a small part of the images, by analyzing how weighting of the loss function can help address this issue. Balancing the weights of the foreground and background class in the cost-function was found to be crucial to achieve ...
  • Segmentation and Unsupervised Adversarial Domain Adaptation Between Medical Imaging Modalities 

    Strauman, Andreas Storvik (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-07-13)
    Segmenting and labelling tumors in multimodal medical imaging are often vital parts of diagnostics and can in many cases be very labor intensive for clinicians. The effort in advancing time-saving methods in the medical health sector might be of great help for busy clinicians and can maybe even save lives. Furthermore, creating methods that generically, accurately and successfully process unlabelled ...
  • An investigation of the robustness of distance measure-based supervised labelling of segmented remote sensing images 

    Kiærbech, Åshild (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-03)
    Unsupervised clustering methods on remote sensing images have shown good results. However, this type of machine learning needs additional labelling to be an end-to-end classification in the same manner as traditional supervised classification. The automation of the labelling needs further exploration. We want to investigate the robustness of a supervised automatic labelling scheme by comparing a ...
  • Correction Strategies for Breathing Induced Motion in PET Images 

    Bakkevoll, Stian (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-03)
    Breathing induced motion highly impacts the quality of PET images. Motion blur impacts important parameters such as standardised uptake value (SUV) and lesion volume. To be able to stage lung cancer correctly, and provide correct treatment, the impact of motion needs to be reduced. There exists techniques to combat the breathing motion, such as elastic motion correction and gating strategies. ...
  • Deep Image Clustering with Tensor Kernels and Unsupervised Companion Objectives 

    Trosten, Daniel Johansen (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-31)
    Deep image clustering is a rapidly growing branch of machine learning and computer vision, in which deep neural networks are trained to discover groups within a set of images, in an unsupervised manner. Deep neural networks have proven to be immensely successful in several machine learning tasks, but the majority of these advances have been in supervised settings. The process of labeling data for ...
  • Estimering av egenskaper til naturlige klasser i radarbilder med en blandingsmodell 

    Moe, Åse Mari (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-05-31)
    I løpet av de siste årene har isdekket i polhavet gått fra å være flerårsis til å bli en sesongbasert istype. Hvordan isen utvikler seg på sommeren vil avhenge av smeltevannandelen, blant annet på grunn av at smeltevannet har mindre albedo enn isen. For å estimere andelen smeltevann er det i denne oppgaven utviklet flere metoder som kan brukes på satellittbilder. Disse metodene bruker en statistisk ...
  • Analyzing Behavioral Biometrics of Handwriting Using Myo Gesture Control Armband

  • A compact portable resonance probe system for in situ measurements of snow conditions 

    Reistad, Jakop (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-01-31)
    A resonance probe for measuring the dielectric properties of snow in terms of the resonance frequency is described and tested. The dielectric properties of snow are closely related to the density and the water content in snow. Having a probe capable of measuring the dielectric properties is therefore a useful tool for anyone working with quantitative descriptions of snow properties. In situ measurements ...

    The focus of this thesis is to find an alternative way to reconstruct a pseudo quadrature polarimetric (quad-pol) covariance matrix from compact polarimetric (compact-pol) data. In the latest years, the compact polarimetry SAR mode was developed and used more and more widely. It provides a good compromise between area covered and information content per pixel [13]. The literature has focused ...

    Haugen, Hallvard (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-06-02)
    A microwave radar for non-invasive snow stratigraphy measurements has been developed. Results were promising, but it failed to detect light powder snow in the air-snowpack interface. The aim of this thesis is to find and verify a system for estimating altitude on centimeter scale over a snow surface, independent of snow conditions. Also, relative pitch and roll angle estimation between the UAV and ...

  • Modeling probability density functions of non-negative random variables using novel series expansions based on mellin kind statistics 

    Brenn, Torgeir (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-05-31)
    Mellin kind (MK) statistics is the framework which arises if the Fourier transform is replaced with the Mellin transform when computing the characteristic function from the probability density function. We may then proceed to retrieve logarithmic moments and cumulants, which have important applications in the analysis of heavy-tailed distribution models for non-negative random variables. In this ...
  • Snow Stratigraphy Measurements With UWB Radar 

    Jenssen, Rolf-Ole Rydeng (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-12-14)
    The focus of this thesis is to find and verify a non-invasive method to determine the layer distribution (stratigraphy) in snowpacks, which might aid avalanche risk assessment. Slab avalanches release due to failure and collapse in a weak snow layer. Determining the spatial distribution and depth of weak layers in avalanche starting zones is a high-risk task. Moreover, by manually digging snow ...
