For the strength of humans is the recognition of patterns and of change.
The power of machines is number crunching.
We take the best of both worlds:
- Domain Experts who are familiar with their images, select ‘reference images‘ and examine their re-visualisations;
- Reference Images are representative of ‘standard’ or ‘normal’ conditions;
- Selection Criteria formulate what they are looking for;
- Boundary Conditions set the limits for ‘extreme’ situations;
- Monitoring Operators notice how many images are ‘off limits’;
- Quality can thus be observed over time and controlled by quantitative formulae.
Visually, Domain Experts see the light- and colour-infused ‘make-up’ of objects and phenomena in True Colour 3D.
Numerically, the quantifications are carried out in Digital Colour Brightness:
- the digital representation of Light and Colour – as produced by the respective imaging technology.
Metrically, the values need to be associated with measuring units pertaining to the image content:
- Domain Experts know what they are looking for and what they would like to compare numerically over time:
- quality of events and processes during production;
- properties of materials;
- characteristics of nanoparticles;
- Domain Experts build their own ontology or choose their terms from existing ones.
