Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

2. round (applications submitted from 03.07.2017 to 25.07.2017)

  1. Advanced algorithms for monitoring activity using mobile sensors

    The theme of this dissertation is aimed on monitoring and evaluation of activities performed by individuals using sensors commonly available in mobile devices (accelerometer, GPS, microphone, heartbeat sensor) and it can be divided into two parts. The goal of the first part is to analyze possibilities of mobile devices, become familiar with the types of sensor data and assess their potential. The goal of the second part is to design advanced algorithms for processing of captured data to identify different types of performed activities (rest, walk, run). Applicants are expected to be familiar with Matlab programming and have an overview in the area of processing and analysis of 1D signals.

    Tutor: Vítek Martin, Ing., Ph.D.

  2. Analysis of 3D CT mono-energetic and spectral data aimed at determining spatial distribution of bone mineral density in norm. and onkol. patients, including trend analysis of temporal development

    Design and development of new methods of CT image data for automatic analysis of spatial distribution of bone mineral density and its temporal development aimed at different clinical applications, using advanced methods of tissue classification and possibly utilising results of previous research of the research group. Data will be provided and the results medically evaluated in cooperation with national and foreign medical institutions. The project is a part of a long-term cooperation with the Philips Nederland firm; the doctoral student may obtain a financial support when successful. The applicant is expected to master basic methodology of image processing and analysis, and have good background in structured programming of numerical methods in MATLAB utilizing also links to different public program libraries.

    Tutor: Jan Jiří, prof. Ing., CSc.

  3. Detection and classification of metastatic lesions in spine and other bones using mono-energetic and spectral 3D CT image data, including trend analysis of temporal development

    Design and development of new methods of CT data analysis for automatic detection and classification of lesions in spine and further bones, including formulating approaches for trend analysis of the temporal development in series of CT examinations. Data will be provided and the results medically evaluated in cooperation with national and foreign medical institutions. The project is a part of a long-term cooperation with the Philips Nederland firm; the doctoral student may obtain a financial support when successful. The applicant is expected to master basic methodology of image processing and analysis, and have good background in structured programming of numerical methods in MATLAB utilizing also links to different public program libraries.

    Tutor: Jan Jiří, prof. Ing., CSc.

1. round (applications submitted from 01.04.2017 to 15.05.2017)

  1. Advanced methods for assessment of heart rate variability dynamic

    The theme focuses on the development of advanced methods for analysing of dynamic component of heart rate variability. The aim is to interconnect methods for the analysis of time series with the state of the art and mostly nonlinear methods for analysis of heart rate variability, to verify properties of the proposed approach in experimental cardiology data, and to describe the discriminative capability of the proposed approach in comparative studies.
