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) Deep Semantic Image Segmentation

2) CVML software development tools


Date/time: Wednesday 17th June 2020, 19:30-21:00 EEST for both lectures
(9:30-11:00 am California time, 12:30-13:00 pm New York time, 00:30-2:00 am
Beijing time).


Registration  can be done using the link:

Lecture abstracts

1) Deep Semantic Image Segmentation, Wednesday 17th June 2020, 19:30-20:15

Summary: Semantic image segmentation is a very important computer vision
task with several applications in autonomous systems perception, robotic
vision and medical imaging. Recent semantic image segmentation methods rely
on deep neural networks and aim to assign a specific class label to each
pixel of the input image. This lecture overviews the topic and addresses
some of the semantic image segmentation challenges, notably: Deep semantic
Image Segmentation architectures. Skip connections. U-nets. BiSeNet.
Semantic image segmentation performance, computational complexity and


2) CVML software development tools, Wednesday 17th June 2020, 20:15-21:00

Summary: This lecture overviews the various SW tools, libraries and
environments used in computer vision and machine learning: Robotic Operating
System (ROS). Libraries (OpenCV, BLAS, cuBLAS, MKL DNN, cuDNN), DNN
Frameworks (Neon, Tensorflow, Pytortch, Keras, MXNet), Distributed/cloud
computing (MapReduce programming model, Apache Spark), Collaborative SW
Development tools (GitHub, Bitbucket).

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

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.
