    Speech Title:: Dealing with uncertainty in image analysis
    Abstract: In this talk, I start with a simple classification problem, introducing Naïve Bayes as a classification model. As the applications of this classification model and its kind, I show a few application areas, initiating our discussion on event detection that covers our studies on gender recognition, age classification, human detection and tracking, and trajectory clustering. In the second strand, I explain the importance and value of undertaking research on mouse behaviour analysis for Parkinson’s disease. In particular, our research on mouse detection and tracking, single- and multi-view mouse behaviour recognition using Bayesian and deep learning will
