Deep learning approach for laboratory mice grimace scaling

Eral, Mustafa
Deep learning is extremely attractive research topic in pattern recognition and machine learning areas. Applications in speech recognition, natural language processing, and machine vision fields gained huge acceleration in performance by employing deep learning. In this thesis, deep learning is used for medical purposes in order to scale pain degree of drug stimulated mice by examining facial grimace. For this purpose each frame in the videos in the training set were scaled manually by experts according to Mouse Grimace Scaling(MGS) manual and these frames were used for training a convolutional neural network. For testing the network, another set of videos which was not used for training before, was used. In order to show the classification power of convolutional neural networks, the same classification tasks are performed with some classic kernel based machine learning algorithms and results are compared. For training and testing, a workstation having two powerful graphic card(GPU) is used. 


Rapid training data generation from image sequences for pattern recognition
DİLAN, Rasim Askin; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan (2011-04-15)
This study focuses on the development of a novel technique for the rapid generation of artificial neural network training data from video streams. Videos captured on an off-road terrain are used to train artificial neural networks that learn to differentiate road and non-road sections in the captured videos. Contrary to the times-taking frame-by-frame processing, in the proposed method, classification data of road pixels is created concurrently as the video plays. The proposed method is explained in detail ...
Computational representation of protein sequences for homology detection and classification
Oğul, Hasan; Mumcuoğlu, Ünal Erkan; Department of Information Systems (2006)
Machine learning techniques have been widely used for classification problems in computational biology. They require that the input must be a collection of fixedlength feature vectors. Since proteins are of varying lengths, there is a need for a means of representing protein sequences by a fixed-number of features. This thesis introduces three novel methods for this purpose: n-peptide compositions with reduced alphabets, pairwise similarity scores by maximal unique matches, and pairwise similarity scores by...
Key protected classification for collaborative learning
Sariyildiz, Mert Bulent; Cinbiş, Ramazan Gökberk; Ayday, Erman (Elsevier BV, 2020-08-01)
© 2020Large-scale datasets play a fundamental role in training deep learning models. However, dataset collection is difficult in domains that involve sensitive information. Collaborative learning techniques provide a privacy-preserving solution, by enabling training over a number of private datasets that are not shared by their owners. However, recently, it has been shown that the existing collaborative learning frameworks are vulnerable to an active adversary that runs a generative adversarial network (GAN...
Mesh Learning for Object Classification using fMRI Measurements
Ekmekci, Ömer; Ozay, Mete; Oztekin, Ilke; GİLLAM, İLKE; Oztekin, Uygar (2013-09-18)
Machine learning algorithms have been widely used as reliable methods for modeling and classifying cognitive processes using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) data. In this study, we aim to classify fMRI measurements recorded during an object recognition experiment. Previous studies focus on Multi Voxel Pattern Analysis (MVPA) which feeds a set of active voxels in a concatenated vector form to a machine learning algorithm to train and classify the cognitive processes. In most of the MVPA methods,...
Multiobjective evolutionary feature subset selection algorithm for binary classification
Deniz Kızılöz, Firdevsi Ayça; Coşar, Ahmet; Dökeroğlu, Tansel; Department of Computer Engineering (2016)
This thesis investigates the performance of multiobjective feature subset selection (FSS) algorithms combined with the state-of-the-art machine learning techniques for binary classification problem. Recent studies try to improve the accuracy of classification by including all of the features in the dataset, neglecting to determine the best performing subset of features. However, for some problems, the number of features may reach thousands, which will cause too much computation power to be consumed during t...
