Machine Learning Is Reaching for the Stars
Nov. 29, 2018

The National Centre of Competence in Research PlanetS is organizing a workshop on Machine Learning from Feb. 13 - 15, 2019 at the Geneva Observatory, University of Geneva. The three-day event will introduce astronomers to the practical use of Machine Learning for astronomical data. Specifically, it will cover these subjects: 

  • Supervised: Deep Learning for transit detection
  • Supervised: from linear regression, through XGBoots to AutoML and SVM
  • Unsupervised: Dimensionality Reduction from PCA to T-SNE

Prof. Paolo Favaro and PhD student Simon Jenni are invited to speak at the event. The registration is currently open, but limited to 30 participants. For more information, visit the workshop website here.

Light Field Workshop at Fraunhofer Institute
Nov. 29, 2018

Paolo Favaro will give a talk at the Light Field Workshop at Fraunhofer Institute on Feb. 22, 2019.

The aim of this RealVision training meeting is to "combine expertise from several disciplines, i.e. engineering, computer science, physics, vision science and psychology – that are usually disconnected – and train the RealVision Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) to be capable of working with all stages and aspects of visual processing to overcome existing interdisciplinary and intersectorial barriers to efficiently develop truly perceptually better visual imaging systems."

Further details about the workshop will be posted shortly on the website.

BASP Frontiers
July 28, 2018

In its fifth edition, the International Biomedical and Astronomical Signal Processing (BASP) Frontiers workshop will welcome 100 participants to discuss topics in theoretical, astrophysical, and biomedical signal processing, with a particular focus on imaging. Prof. Paolo Favaro will give a talk titled “Blind Deconvolution: A Journey from Model-Based to Deep Learning Methods”. The workshop will be from January 3-8 2019 in Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland.

IEEE SPS Summer School on Light Field Data Representation, Interpretation and Compression
July 28, 2018

IEEE have recently organized a summer school on Light Field Data Representation, Interpretation and Compression and invited Prof. Paolo Favaro to give a talk. His presentation covered topics in light field processing such as depth estimation, extended depth of field, super resolution, reflection separation and motion deblurring. The school took place at Mid Sweden University in Sundsvall, Sweden during May 28 - June 1, 2018.

Rank Prize Symposium
July 28, 2018
