Machine learning improves biological image analysis

IMPRS-IS Faculty Jakob Macke and team develop a new algorithm that overcomes SMLM limitation

Scientists use super-resolution microscopy to study previously undiscovered cellular worlds, revealing nanometer-scale details inside cells. This method revolutionized light microscopy and earned its inventors the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. In an international collaboration, AI researchers from Tübingen have now developed an algorithm that significantly accelerates this technology.
