The European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems offers an interdisciplinary PhD program. The ELLIS PhD program is a key element of the ELLIS initiative and its goal is to foster and educate the best talent in machine learning related research areas by pairing outstanding students with leading academic and industrial researchers in Europe. The program supports excellent PhDs across Europe by giving them access to leading research through boot camps, summer schools and workshops of the ELLIS programs. Every PhD student is supervised by one ELLIS fellow/scholar and one ELLIS member from a different country and conducts a 1 year exchange at the other location.
Researchers send wake-up call to the car industry
A team of researchers in Tübingen show that optical flow systems based on deep neural networks – a likely component of future autonomous cars – are vulnerable to adversarial attacks. The computer vision experts are shaking up the automotive industry by warning car manufacturers around the globe that it could take a simple color pattern to put the brakes on computer vision systems in autonomous cars.
The funding will be used to advance the field of autonomous vision
The MPI-IS group leader and professor at the University of Tübingen will receive a grant of some 1.47 million euros for his "LEGO 3D" project.
From 30.6. to 7.7.2019 Application deadline: April 15, 2019
We are organizing the 3rd Computational Vision Summer School from 30.6. to 7.7.2019 in the beautiful black forest, Germany. It is aimed at PhD students and Postdocs with an interest in vision science research. Previous editions were fun, intellectually rewarding events for students and faculty alike. The summer school spans the entire spectrum of vision research from neuroscience and psychophysics to computer vision and fosters discussions at the intersection of biological and artificial vision systems. The school is unique in bringing together people from diverse disciplines in a very familiar atmosphere (only 60 people in total). CVSS is tuition free and accomodation is sponsored by the CRC/1233 Robust Vision.
Lars GTC Europe talk on the Dynamics of Generative Adversarial Networks is now available.
We are looking for a PhD student working on interpretable representations.
For the first time, the prestigious IEEE PAMI Young Researcher Award goes to a German researcher.
