Internship: AI and data analytics framework robustness analysis

Barco designs technology that makes everyday life a little better. Seeing beyond the image, we develop sight, sound, and sharing solutions to help you work together, share insights, and wow audiences. Our focus is on three core markets: Enterprise (from meeting and control rooms to corporate spaces), Healthcare (from the radiology department to the operating room), and Entertainment (from movie theaters to live events and attractions). With a team of over 3,300 employees, located all around the globe, we realized sales of 770.01 million euro in 2020. 

Background of Barco Healthcare:

Barco develops high-precision medical display systems to bring enhanced visualization and diagnosis across the healthcare enterprise, including radiology, mammography, surgery, pathology, clinical review imaging and dentistry. Barco's full line of color and grayscale diagnostic displays, display controllers and softcopy Quality Assurance (QA) tools facilitate confident diagnoses while guaranteeing perfect image quality over time and across displays. Next to this Barco is also an important player in the Digital Operating Room market with the Barco NEXXIS platform, a unique image management solution that builds on the IP network to ensure complete integration of all devices in and beyond the operating room.


Goal & Description of the project:

Quality and robustness are critical in Healthcare applications. Guaranteeing this starts during the R&D phase and continues long after productization. With the usage of AI in these safety-critical applications, a thorough robustness analysis dedicated to AI is essential.

Beside the typical parameters of influence during AI training such as rotation and crop size, more specific use-case-dependent parameters were identified and taken care of. For skin-lesion detection and classification this requires e.g. robustness against hair presence, variability in image acquisition, marker presence and deformation due to skin stretching.

During this internship the robustness metrics of an AI model will be thoroughly analysed. This includes implementing a framework to leverage techniques such as Monte-Carlo simulations and boundary value analysis to assess the robustness against a broad range of variables and real-world situations.


Required Skills:

  • Python
  • Experience with scripting and automation
  • Experience with one or more of the following is considered a plus: TensorFlow, Keras, pytest, Jenkins, Docker and heterogeneous architectures


Also, you …

  • Have an open and enthusiastic attitude
  • Are creative
  • Have an analytical and methodical thinking and way of working
  • Can write and speak English



Python, Robust Neural Network, Monte-Carlo simulations


About internships at Barco:

The Technology and Innovation group of Barco Healthcare specialises in designing, testing and validating new display technologies and imaging system components specifically for life-critical healthcare applications.

Internships within the Technology and Innovation group consist of 3 to 6 months working fulltime in the lab environment, interacting with the multi-national, multi-disciplinary R&D teams.

During your internship you will be guided by our engineers who are world-experts in the field of medical display image quality. You will have the possibility to work together with them to bring the future to today’s medical imaging technology.

You will also have the opportunity to contribute to cutting edge research by applying your technical knowledge, and you will have ample opportunity and support for developing your industrial writing and presentation skills.

We are a lively and international group, including nationalities from Europe and around the world. Our past interns have come from a variety of countries, including students from Belgium, France, Spain, Turkey, Italy, Lithuania and even Indonesia.
