Accepted paper in EBioMedicine

February 20th, 2018 by florian

I had the great pleasure to collaborate on the image analysis side of a very interesting projet in biology.

This article, entitled “A Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor-Dependent Sprouting Angiogenesis Assay Based on an In Vitro Human Blood Vessel Model for the Study of Anti-Angiogenic Drugs” is available here :

New position + new papers

November 2nd, 2015 by florian

Lots of changes have happened recently.
The biggest new being that I am now an associate professor at Université Paris-Dauphine.

Also, the following papers have been accepted/published since my last update :
- “Averaging Covariance Matrices for EEG Signal Classification based on the CSP: an Empirical Study”, FY, Fabien Lotte and Masashi Sugiyama presented in EUSIPCO 2015
- “Importance-weighted covariance estimation for robust common spatial pattern”, Alessandro Balzi, FY and Masashi Sugiyama accepted for publication in Pattern Recognition Letters
- “Geometry-Aware Principal Component Analysis for Symmetric Positive Definite Matrices”, Inbal Horev, FY and Mavashi Sugiyama, accepted to ACML.

Two technical report are also available on arxiv :
- Supervised LogEuclidean Metric Learning for Symmetric Positive Definite Matrices
- Challenge IEEE-ISBI/TCB : Application of Covariance matrices and wavelet marginals

The publication page of this site should be updated accordingly soon.

By the way …

… my affiliation has changed since last October …
As the lab moved from Tokyo Institute of Technology to the University of Tokyo, I am now a postdoc from UTokyo.

ISBI Challenge : Bone Texture Characterization

May 31st, 2014 by florian

As published by the organizers of this challenge, one of my approach has been ranked first on the Bone Texture Characterization Challenge organized for the last ISBI conference.

This approach used some Wavelet Marginals (described and used in Wavelet Kernel Learning for building kernels). Two other approaches. based on covariance matrices, have been less succesfull and seem to have overfitted.

Moving to Japan
