BSC at the 2017 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)

2017-08-17T16:31:10+00:00 July 26th, 2017|

The 2017 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) is over.   CVPR'2017 is the premier annual computer vision event comprising the main conference and several co-located workshops, the best meeting point for students, academics and industry researchers in this area. This year Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence were the focus of the conference, an this was the reason why BSC-CNS  has been present with contributions in two workshops: Disentangling Motion, Foreground and Background Features in Videos: Our model and source code are publicly available at this https URL  The paper that contains the detailed contribution can be downloaded from arxiv repository. SalGAN: Visual Saliency Prediction with Generative Adversarial Networks: Our model and source code are publicly available at this https URL .  The shorter extended abstract presented as spotlight in the CVPR 2017 Scene [...]

Barcelona will be present at CVPR’2017 with many contributions

The IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition 2017, CVPR '2017 , is the premier annual computer vision event comprising the main conference and several co-located workshops, the best meeting point for students, academics and industry researchers in this area, where Deep Learning is gaining momentum.  This year the conference will be held between July 21-26, , in Honolulu (Hawaii, USA). Our research group at BSC-CNS  and UPC Barcelona Tech will be present at CVPR'2017 with contribution in two workshops. I'm happy to have this awesome opportunity, thanks to our collaboration with the research group at UPC Barcelona Tech  led by  Xavier Giró i Nieto.  We hope that with our effort and collaboration, we can help to turn Barcelona into an Deep Learning hub.  Throughout the next academic year, we will promote different initiatives in this direction.

New Deep Learning for Artificial Intelligence MSc course in Barcelona

2017-08-17T16:31:21+00:00 July 7th, 2017|

Deep Learning for Artificial Intelligence Master Course at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Autumn 2017) Deep learning technologies are at the core of the current revolution in artificial intelligence for multimedia data analysis. The convergence of large-scale annotated datasets and affordable GPU hardware has allowed the training of neural networks for data analysis tasks which were previously addressed with hand-crafted features. Architectures such as convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks or Q-nets for reinforcement learning have shaped a brand new scenario in signal processing. This course will cover the basic principles of deep learning from both an algorithmic and computational perspectives.  Complete learning systems in different Deep Learning frameworks and platforms will be introduced via hadns-on, projects and assignments. You will learn to solve new classes of problems [...]
