From this book "Deep Learning and Convolutional Neural Networks for Medical Image Computing"
In 2013, I was fortunate to attract Dr. Holger Roth to be a postdoctoral fellow in my group. Holger had received his graduate training under David Hawkes at University College London. With this outstanding foundation, Holger was
poisedto enter the new deep learning field and take it by storm. He published early papers on pancreas and lymph node detection and segmentation, two very challenging problems in radiology image processing.
webster gives this definition about "poise"
: to hold or carry in equilibrium
: to hold or carry (the head) in a particular way
none of these seems to be the meaning in the book.
does "poise somebody" mean "invite", "ask", or some other meaning?
