Biomedical imaging is one of the regional strengths of Eastern Finland. Automated image analysis plays an increasingly important role in imaging as the amount of acquired data is continuously growing and manual image analysis methods start to reach their limits. At the same time, automated image analysis methods have taken giant leaps forward with the development of artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Understanding the possibilities created by these new tools is an essential part of the know-how of the professionals relying on biomedical imaging in their jobs.  “Enhancing the innovation potential by advancing the know-how on biomedical image analysis – Kuopio Biomedical Image Analysis Center (KUBIAC)” project will reinforce the biomedical imaging competence in Eastern Finland. The new Kuopio Biomedical Image Analysis Center will create added value by educating imaging professionals in AI-based image analysis, by improving collaboration between different stakeholders, and by creating targeted networking possibilities to image analysis experts.
