Computation in microscopy: How computers are
changing the way we build and use microscopes"
Changhuei Yang, Ph.D., California Institute of Technology
The level of computational power we can currently access, has significantly changed the way we think about, process and interact with microscopy information. In this talk, I will discuss some of our recent computational microscopy and deep learning work, that showcase some of these shifts in the context of pathology and life science research. I will talk about Fourier Ptychographic Microscopy (FPM) – the first demonstrated computational approach for numerically zeroing out physical aberrations from microscopy images. As a novel way to collect and process microscopy data, FPM can also bring significant workflow advantages to pathology. I will also talk about the use of Deep Learning in image analysis and point out some of impactful ways Deep Learning can improve the way we deal with image data in pathology and life science research. Looking into the near future, the surprising findings of these current endeavors strongly indicate that the redesign of microscope to better suit these computational needs would be instrumental for the next level of AI based image analysis.
