AVSP: Winner of the State-of-Mind Sub-Challenge 20.10.2019

The ETRO-VUB-NPU Joint International Research Group AVSP won the first and second prize (out of the 61 participating teams) in the 9th Audio/Visual emotion Challenge and Workshop (AVEC2019) contest for State-of-Mind and Cross-cultural Affect recognition challenges. AVSP has been the winner of two previous contests: AVEC2015 challenge on emotion & physiological signals and the AVEC2016 challenge on depression in human-agent interactions

Best paper award @ ICIP Taipei 03.10.2019

Hung Duy Le, Huynh van Luong, and Nikos Deligiannis, ETRO and imec researchers, received one of the Best Paper Awards at the prestigious IEEE International Conference on Image Processing organised in September 2019 at Taipei, Taiwan. The award was given to three papers (out of the 1000 presented ones), selected through a voting process. The paper, entitled “Designing recurrent neural networks by unfolding an l1-l1 minimization algorithm” presented a new interpretable deep neural network for the processing and analysis of multi-dimensional time-series data (such as video sequences). The developed deep model is able to capture the latent structure in data allowing the design of interpretable and explainable AI architectures that are supported by theoretical guarantees.

ETRO goes TADA 21.09.2019

TAwhat? TADA stands for ‘Toekomst Atelier del Avenir’: an atelier for the future students of our society. In particular Brussels children age 10 to 14 from the more difficult neighborhoods who don’t always get all chances to become successful later in life. TADA wants to motivate these children early and make them enthusiast for several domains by workshops on Saturdays. The starting topic of this academic year is ICT: hardware and technology of the future. Of course ETRO was more than happy to get involved and show what we are doing! Deconstructing computers to see the inner hardware, showing what AR and VR stands for and measuring heart rate and muscle activity. Hopefully we can intrigue our little students and awake some next generation engineers.
