About Amir Yavariabdi

I am a Senior Lecturer in computer science at Blekinge Institute of Technology in Sweden. Within the Department of Computer Science, my primary research focuses on the analysis of non-sequential and time-series data using artificial intelligence and machine learning methods. Furthermore, my research spans medical image analysis (image registration and fusion, detection, and segmentation), remote sensing (land classification, object detection, and change detection), as well as computer vision (3D reconstruction and object detection and tracking). Since 2024, I have been engaged in conducting research at the Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics Lab (AIDA), a unit within the Computer Science Department at BTH.


Academic Journey: Between 2015 and 2024, I worked at Karatay University in Turkey, where I held the position of Assistant Professor in the Mechatronics Engineering Department for nearly a decade. Throughout this period, I served as a lecturer for undergraduate and postgraduate courses covering a range of subjects, including AI-related courses, signal processing, computer programming, and embedded systems. Additionally, I conducted research on various industrial and academic projects, with a specific focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence. During this period, I supervised numerous undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Research and Collaborations: My research portfolio includes a diverse array of projects aimed at leveraging AI technologies to address real-world challenges. Collaborating with universities and companies, I am developing solutions for various domains. With Konya Technical University’s civil engineering and architecture departments, we are pioneering the development of an AI-based system to extract geometric parameters from building planes and façade images, enhancing rapid seismic evaluation methods. Partnering with Turk Telekom Turkey, our research focuses on developing AI algorithms for network-related data, particularly anomaly detection, automating root cause analysis, and KPI tuning. In collaboration with Neurocom in Australia, we are spearheading the development of a SaaS solution using machine learning techniques to intelligently monitor money transactions in streaming data. Additionally, my partnership with Meliora Academy involves creating interactive games utilizing computer vision methods to enhance mathematics education for fourth-grade students. With AutoDidactic Technologies, we have developed a reinforcement learning-based simulation solution for pilot training, facilitating adaptive learning in various scenarios. Moreover, my research extends to remote sensing and medical image analysis, encompassing MRI, Transvaginal Ultrasound (TVUS) images, and whole slide images for breast cancer grading.
