Title: Is there such a thing as private information?
One of the original motivations for quantum information theory was the use of quantum effects to protect the privacy of classical communications.  Yet the new theory, which has grown to elegantly encompass all of classical informatics, has undermined the very notion of classical private information, by showing that it sits on a slippery slope between quantum information and public information.

NBIA Colloquium: Poul Erik Lindelof

25 May 2018 kl. 14:15

Title: Applying Modern Physics to Archaeology
In recent years, much progress has been made in measuring archaeological ages. Among new methods is the study of radioisotopes other than the standard workhorse, C-14. I shall describe work I have done with K-40 which establishes that humans inhabited the island of Flores in Indonesia one million years ago. Read more

Title: Exploring embryonic patterning with colonies of human embryonic stem cells. 
Embryology at the beginning of the 21st century finds itself in a situation similar to neurobiology; the behavior of the component pieces is understood in some detail, but how they self-assemble to become life is still very hazy.

Multimodality imaging for glioblastoma management
Glioblastoma is the most aggressive primary brain tumor, and despite being relatively rare, it has a devastating impact on patients and their families. The aim of this PhD project was to evaluate the pattern of recurrence after introduction of positron emission tomography (PET) for radiotherapy planning and to investigate the feasibility of advanced, multi-modality imaging for glioblastoma management. The results showed that patterns of failure remained unchanged after the clinical introduction ...

PhD Thesis Defence by Rasmus Bødker Madsen

03 August 2018 kl. 13:30

Seismic acquisition is the major provider of geophysical data for large-scale hydrocarbon exploration purposes. Large quantities of data-rich seismic surveys hampers a proper integration of geophysical data and geological prior knowledge, due to computational demands. To remedy this, simplified and approximate models, and mathematically convenient priors are applied to allow computationally faster solutions. It is in particular difficult to obtain reliable uncertainty estimates of the physical p...
