Humans and animals excel in their power-efficient use of sensor data and the processing of such data to decide on relevant actions. Although natural cognition is still poorly understood, the automatic analysis of sensor data, e.g. from cameras, microphones, radio receivers, and inertial measurement units, is developing rapidly and is finding applications and use in all parts of society. Within the health care sector, there is an increased need to automatically analyze medical data e.g. from imaging (PET, CT, MR, etc.) or from medical records, or from wearable devices. Within research, there is a need to automatically analyze, extract and visualize relevant data from e.g. MAX IV and ESS. Other application areas are for example self-driving cars and smartphones.
