As a Graduation student at ORTEC you will be part of the Center of Excellence within ORTEC Consulting. The Center of Excellence continuously seeks to improve the knowledge base of ORTEC consultants and data scientists thereby improving project quality for our customers. In particular, we are exploring data science and machine learning methods that can be applied to optimize challenges in our customer’s businesses. In this project, you will work in close cooperation with the company IMIX (www.imix.nl) who is the owner of the data and specific classification challenge.
The aim of this thesis is to develop efficient methods that classify images of very similar seeds, where each image depicts one seed. From a methodological perspective, the main aim is to explore how deep learning methods (neural nets) can be applied for this task. From an application perspective, the additional challenge is to find out how image information and characteristics of objects can be combined optimally to increase classification performance, when compared to using only image information.
At a more detailed level, classification questions concerns
sensitivity to the learning set (merging images)
In order to test the proposed methods, they need to be coded into a working algorithm. This will preferably be done in a programming language (Python/MxNet) and environment that can be used by our partner IMIX without too many modifications.
