Short description

From a medical point of view, patients suffering from voice disorders need observation of the vocal folds’ oscillation patterns. The vocal folds’ movement is recorded with an endoscopic high-speed camera. The video is then analysed to quantify the glottal movement. State-of-the-art algorithms need extensive user intervention. This fact is problematic from a scientific perspective: Extensive user interventions lead to great inter-user variability of the analysis results. In order to eliminate this variability the student should review and update these algorithms to allow fully automatic analysis.
