Title: Consensus prototype learning
According to a Chinese proverb “Three cobblers combined equal the master mind”. Combining multiple models into one consensus model helps among others reduce the uncertainty in the initial models. Consensus prototype learning can be formulated in arbitrary problem domains, either in an informal or a formal manner. In this talk the focus will be given to the formal framework of so-called generalized median. Related computation algorithms will be presented. A variety of applications in pattern recognition will be shown to demonstrate the power of consensus prototype learning, including consensus clustering, median strings, median graphs, image segmentation combination, and atlas construction.

University of Groningen and University of Oldenburg (UOL) celebrate 40 years of collaboration in 2020. On 29 October 2020 (Festakt-date) the UG and the UOL will officially renew the partnership that they started 40 years ago. The anniversary will...
The COVID-19 restrictions have been tightened once again. To many staff members and students, this feels like a step backwards. We chatted with members of the Board of the University Jouke de Vries, Cisca Wijmenga and Hans Biemans about managerial...
Biological clocks have sizeable effects on the performance of elite athletes. This conclusion was drawn by chronobiologists from the University of Groningen after studying the times achieved by swimmers in four different Olympic Games. Shifting the...
