Research Seminar


In this weekly seminar we present and discuss cutting edge research from the field of computer vision but also more general machine learning papers. Students (Bachelor or Master), PhD students and PostDocs are invited to join us. Each week one paper gets presented and discussed. All participants prepare the paper beforehand and take remarks to be discussed during the seminar.

Place and time

The reading group takes place virtually via Zoom every Friday from 11 am to 12 am. If you like to participate, please write an e-mail to Christian Reiser who will provide you with further details.
