REgister

Londons largest computer vision meetup

LondonCV was formed in June 2017 by the merging of three separate networking groups 'London Computer Vision & Sensing', 'London Computer Vision & Pattern Recognition' and ‘London Image Processing’.

As an organising team our aim is to build London’s largest networking group in order to facilitate learning and sharing around the state-of-the-art in CV research and application. 

Initially we will be be organising one high-quality free networking event every second month - but more to come soon including the 'LondonCV Insiders'. Register below and watch this space.

Meet #8: Ira Ktena - Twitter, Neil Cornish, David Browning - Oxford Cancer Biomarkers

Ira Ktena - Twitter

Graph representations are often used to model structured data at an individual or population level and have numerous applications in pattern recognition problems. In the field of neuroscience, where such representations are commonly used to model structural or functional connectivity between a set of brain regions, graphs have proven to be of great importance to reveal patterns related to brain development and disease, which were previously unknown. This talk is going to cover the evaluation of similarity between brain connectivity networks in a manner that accounts for the graph structure and is tailored for a particular application.

Ira is a Research Scientist with the Cortex Applied Machine Learning team at Twitter UK. She recently completed her PhD in Medical Image Computing at Imperial College London under the supervision of Professor Daniel Rueckert, during which she visited the Stroke Group at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Her research focused on developing methods for modelling and analysing graph-structured neuroimaging data at an individual or population level using traditional graph theoretical approaches and geometric deep learning. Last summer she spent some time as a Research Intern with Spotify London working on audio generative models and machine learning for audio understanding.

Neil Cornish, David Browning - Oxford Cancer Biomarkers

Internationally renowned Professors David Kerr and Nick La Thangue started OCB from the laboratories of the University of Oxford in 2012. Their aim was to discover and develop biomarkers using screening platforms to advance personalised medicine within oncology, specifically colorectal cancer and its treatments. Since then, they have built a world class development team consisting of industry professionals, leading scientists and oncologists, retaining strong links to Oxford University.

David brings 36 years of applied healthcare experience to Oxford Cancer Biomarkers, applying a focus on technology translation to improve standards of care with optimal health economic outcomes. David’s previous role was Senior Vice President of Innovation and Development of the BioCIty Group, where he led the successful launch and growth of MediCity, supporting new business creation and growth to harness scientific innovation to address global health and wellbeing challenges.

Neil has spent 38 years in the European IT Industry, working for IBM or as a Director of an IBM Business Partner. Experience includes new business start-ups, acquisitions, disposals and management buyouts. Partnering with IBM until joining in 1989, Neil became UK AIX LOB Manager in 1991 followed by AIX EMEA Marketing Manager in Paris.

Later joining Anix Computers, the company built a reputation as the premier AIX Business in the UK. In 2007 Neil founded M7 Managed Services, an IBM MSP, that launched an AI Centre of Competence in 2017.

Recently acquired by Meridian UK, Neil is now Business Development Director, focussed on developing an AI Ecosystem in partnership with IBM.
