Dynamic In Vivo Skeletal Feature Tracking Via Fluoroscopy Using A Human Gait Model, William Patrick Anderson Dec 2017

Dynamic In Vivo Skeletal Feature Tracking Via Fluoroscopy Using A Human Gait Model, William Patrick Anderson

Doctoral Dissertations

The Tracking Fluoroscope System II, a mobile robotic fluoroscopy platform, developed and built at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, presently employs a pattern matching algorithm in order to identify and track a marker placed upon a subject’s knee joint of interest. The purpose of this research is to generate a new tracking algorithm based around the human gait cycle for prediction and improving the overall accuracy of joint tracking.

This research centers around processing the acquired x-ray images of the desired knee joint obtained during standard clinical operation in order to identify and track directly through the acquired image ...


Computational Analysis Of Neutron Scattering Data, Benjamin Walter Martin Aug 2015

Computational Analysis Of Neutron Scattering Data, Benjamin Walter Martin

Doctoral Dissertations

This work explores potential methods for use in the detection and classification of defects within crystal structures via analysis of diffuse scattering data generated by single crystal neutron scattering experiments. The proposed defect detection methodology uses machine learning and image processing techniques to perform image texture analysis on neutron diffraction patterns generated by neutron scattering simulations. Once the methodology is presented, it is tested via a series of defect detection problems of increasing difficulty which utilize neutron scattering data simulated by a number of simulation techniques. As the problem difficulty is increased, the defect detection methodology is refined in order ...


An Expert System For Guitar Sheet Music To Guitar Tablature, Chuanjun He May 2013

An Expert System For Guitar Sheet Music To Guitar Tablature, Chuanjun He

Doctoral Dissertations

This project applies analysis, design and implementation of the Optical Music Recognition (OMR) to an expert system for transforming guitar sheet music to guitar tablature. The first part includes image processing and music semantic interpretation to interpret and transform sheet music or printed scores into editable and playable electronic form. Then after importing the electronic form of music into internal data structures, our application uses effective pruning to explore the entire search space to find the best guitar tablature. Also considered are alternate guitar tunings and transposition of the music to improve the resulting tablature.


Deep Machine Learning With Spatio-Temporal Inference, Thomas Paul Karnowski May 2012

Deep Machine Learning With Spatio-Temporal Inference, Thomas Paul Karnowski

Doctoral Dissertations

Deep Machine Learning (DML) refers to methods which utilize hierarchies of more than one or two layers of computational elements to achieve learning. DML may draw upon biomemetic models, or may be simply biologically-inspired. Regardless, these architectures seek to employ hierarchical processing as means of mimicking the ability of the human brain to process a myriad of sensory data and make meaningful decisions based on this data. In this dissertation we present a novel DML architecture which is biologically-inspired in that (1) all processing is performed hierarchically; (2) all processing units are identical; and (3) processing captures both spatial and ...
