    Background: New technologies have given rise to an abundance of-omics data, particularly metabolomic data. The scale of these data introduces new challenges for the interpretation and extraction of knowledge, requiring the development of innovative ...
  • Kizel, Fadi; Benediktsson, Jon Atli (MDPI AG, 2020-04-16)
    We propose an unmixing framework for enhancing endmember fraction maps using a combination of spectral and visible images. The new method, data fusion through spatial information-aided learning (DFuSIAL), is based on a learning process for the fusion ...
