Title of seminar: The part and the whole: relations in the scene of sensors’ measurement space

It is my conviction that a system containing a large number of sensors can provide much more formation and knowledge than the simple summation of single sensors. During my earlier career in both industry and academia my favorite activities were around and about intelligent sensor systems. Today, it is clear that the time of smart, self-organized sensor systems has arrived, and I keep pursuing answers and solutions on how to face the related challenges.

Title of seminar: Deep Learning for Computer Vision 

Deep learning has revolutionized how we solve computer vision problems. The Deep Learning for Computer Vision Workshop that we held for the IPCV scholars over four days in March 2019 introduced students to some of the most important and exciting advances, both theoretical and applied. Students attended 16 lectures in total, covering topics like convolutional networks, recurrent networks, optimization, self-supervised learning, and interpretability. The course was well-received, and the IPCV scholars were bright and enthusiastic.

Title of seminar: Research and Innovation in Computer Vision from a technology transfer view-point

I really enjoyed my time with such a multi-cultural group of students. As an entrepreneur with a PhD in Computer Vision, I could offer them two different career paths, and how to eventually merge them. My first session with them was a technical one, focused on photogrammetry and 3D reconstruction techniques, with a focus on industrial applications. The students quickly understood the fundamentals of this field and proposed improvements using newer techniques to improve the results. My second session was about how to start your own business around your research area. Lastly, I had a session with them to solve any questions they would have, and I was gladly surprised that many of them considered starting their own company. In general, it was a great experience and I would totally recommend it.
