The goal of this project is to expose the student to a cycle of scientific research that contemplates the study of fundamentals, the development and the application of one or more methods, and evaluation of the results, with comparisons when it is the case. In particular, the focus of the study is on image-to-image transformation problems of which segmentation is an example, and on the application of fully convolutional networks on these problems. We foresee applications in binary segmentation problems such as vessel segmentation in retinal images and text or specific graphic objects in document images. (AU)
