AI method named one of 2019¿s most exciting discoveries in optics research

News: Dec 12, 2019

Optics & Photonics News has picked Saga Helgadottir’s work on deep learning for particle tracking as a top break-through of the year.
“This has been a really good year for me, research-wise. My publication, presenting a new AI method, garnered a lot of attention,” says Saga Helgadottir, PhD student at the Department of Physics.

The research article in question, which is now gracing Optics & Photonics News’ best-of-2019 list, identifies a new way of implementing neural networks and machine learning in order to track particle motion and study surrounding microenvironments.

She has also been invited to visit research groups abroad and was a speaker at the AI in Health and Health in AI conference held in Gothenburg in November.

Currently, Saga Helgadottir is collaborating with a group of scientists at the Wallenberg laboratory. They’re working on new ways of using deep learning in the medical field.

“I started my PhD research studying bio-hybrid micro swimmers, but ended up more within the area of artificial intelligence and optics. I like this work a lot, and the positive response to my publication earlier this year has allowed me to establish myself in the AI-field.”
