Dear Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Autonomous Systems engineers, scientists, and enthusiasts,
you are welcomed to register to the 2021 Summer e-School on Deep Learning and Computer Vision:
It will take place on 23-27/08/2021 and will be hosted by the Artificial Intelligence and Information Analysis (AIIA) Lab, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki, Greece.
The summer e-school consists of two short e-courses:
a) ‘Short Course Computer Vision and Deep Learning 2021’, 23-24th August 2021, having focus on autonomous drones, cars and marine vessels:
b) ‘Programming short course and workshop on Deep Learning and Computer Vision 2021’, 25-27th August 2021, with applications in digital media and autonomous drones:
You can follow the above-mentioned links for registration on either or both e-courses.
For questions, please contact: Ioanna Koroni <email@example.com>
The first e-course contains 16 live (and recorded) lectures providing an in-depth presentation of computer vision and deep learning problems algorithms with applications on autonomous drones, cars and marine vessels.
The second programming short e-course and workshop offers a mix of live (and recorded) lectures and programming workshops (hands-on lab exercises) and aims at developing registrants’ programming skills for Deep Learning and Computer Vision, with focus on drone imaging/cinematography and digital media applications.
Both short e-courses are organized by Prof. I. Pitas, IEEE and EURASIP fellow, He is AUTH prime investigation for H2020 project AerialCore, Coordinator of the European Horizon2020 R&D project Multidrone, Director of the Artificial Intelligence and Information analysis Lab (AIIA Lab), Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and Chair of the IEEE SPS Autonomous Systems Initiative. He is ranked 249 top Computer Science and Electronics Scientist internationally by Guide2research (2018).
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is the biggest University in Greece and in SE Europe. It is highly ranked internationally.
