Dear Computer Vision/Machine Learning/Autonomous Systems students, engineers, scientists and enthusiasts,
Artificial Intelligence and Information analysis (AIIA) Lab, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece is proud to have launched the live CVML Web lecture series
that covers very important Computer Vision/Machine Learning topics. Two new upcoming 45 min lectures will take place soon:
1) Artificial Neural Networks. Perceptron
2) Multilayer perceptron. Backpropagation
Date/time: Wednesday 27th May 2020, 17:00-18:30 EEST for both lectures (7:00-8:30 am California time, 10:00-11:30 am New York time, 22:00-23:30 Beijing time).
Registration can be done using the link: http://icarus.csd.auth.gr/cvml-web-lecture-series/
Registration for asynchronous access to CVML live Web lecture material (video, pdf/ppt) for any past/present lecture can be done using the link: http://icarus.csd.auth.gr/cvml-web-lecture-series/

2) Multilayer perceptron. Backpropagation, Wednesday 27th May 2020, 17:45-18:30 EEST
Summary: This lecture will cover the basic concepts of Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP), Training MLP neural networks, Activation functions, Loss types, Gradient descent, Error Backpropagation, Stochastic Gradient Descent, Adaptive Learning Rate Algorithms, Regularization, Evaluation, Generalization.
Lecturer: Prof. Ioannis Pitas (IEEE fellow, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, EURASIP fellow) received the Diploma and PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, both from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Since 1994, he has been a Professor at the Department of Informatics of the same University. His current interests are in the areas of machine learning, computer vision, intelligent digital media, human centered interfaces, affective computing, 3D imaging and biomedical imaging. He has published over 860 papers, contributed in 44 books in his areas of interest and edited or (co-)authored another 11 books. He has also been member of the program committee of many scientific conferences and workshops. In the past he served as Associate Editor or co-Editor of 9 international journals and General or Technical Chair of 4 international conferences. He participated in 69 R&D projects, primarily funded by the European Union and is/was principal investigator/researcher in 41 such projects. He has 31000+ citations to his work and h-index 83+ (Google Scholar). Prof. Pitas lead the big European H2020 R&D project MULTIDRONE: https://multidrone.eu/ and is principal investigator (AUTH) in H2020 projects Aerial Core and AI4Media. He is chair of the Autonomous Systems initiative https://ieeeasi.signalprocessingsociety.org/.
Lecturing record of Prof. I. Pitas: He was Visiting/Adjunct/Honorary Professor/Researcher and lectured at several Universities: University of Toronto (Canada), University of British Columbia (Canada), EPFL (Switzerland), Chinese Academy of Sciences (China), University of Bristol (UK), Tampere University of Technology (Finland), Yonsei University (Korea), Erlangen-Nurnberg University (Germany), National University of Malaysia, Henan University (China). He delivered 90 invited/keynote lectures in prestigious international Conferences and top Universities worldwide. He run 17 short courses and tutorials on Autonomous Systems, Computer Vision and Machine Learning, most of them in the past 3 years in many countries, e.g., USA, UK, Italy, Finland, Greece, Australia, N. Zealand, Korea, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Bhutan.

General information: Lectures will consist primarily of live lecture streaming and PPT slides. Attendees (registrants) need no special computer equipment for attending the lecture. They will receive the lecture PDF before each lecture and will have the ability to ask questions real-time. Audience should have basic University-level undergraduate knowledge of any science or engineering department (calculus, probabilities, programming, that are typical e.g., in any ECE, CS, EE undergraduate program). More advanced knowledge (signals and systems, optimization theory, machine learning) is very helpful but nor required.
