CSCS Speaker Announcement: Dr. Sudipta Bhattacharjee

Dr. Sudipta Bhattacharjee (KPIT Technologies Ltd.) Title: Impact of quality of training dataset on pedestrian detection for autonomous driving Abstract: In autonomous driving, the perception task is a key piece requiring object detectors like pedestrian detection and vehicle detection among other. These object detectors are typically implemented using machine learning algorithms involving pipeline of classifiers […]

CSCS Speaker Announcement: Dr. Mario Fritz

Dr. Mario Fritz (Max Planck Institute for Informatics)   Title: Towards Anticipation in Traffic Scene Understanding Abstract: Scene understanding e.g. in terms of semantic segmentations and object detections has made great advances in recent years. In order to facilitate safe autonomous or assisted driving in real-world scene, we have to go beyond assessing the current […]

CSCS Speaker Announcement: Dr. Alexey Dosovitskiy

Dr. Alexey Dosovitskiy (Intel Visual Computing Lab)   Title: Learning sensorimotor control from experience and demonstration Abstract: An intelligent agent should be capable of performing useful actions based on sensory observations – a feat known as sensorimotor control. The notion of usefulness depends on a specific situation – for instance, in a driving scenario useful […]
