Matěj Hoffmann from the group Vision for Robotics Autonomous Systems (VRAS) was a member of the team who won the Kuka Innovation Award 2018, see the video.
Our colleague, Ing. James Brandon Pritts, from the Visual Recognition Group spoke on the topic: Self-driving cars safety. For more information [in Czech], see the article in Hospodarske noviny. Thanks for the representation of our faculty.
Ing. Tomas Sixta and doc. Boris Flach published the article “Polarized actin and VE-cadherin dynamics regulate junctional remodelling and cell migration during sprouting angiogenesis” in prestiguous “Nature Communications“. The research studies mechanisms of endothelial cells while creating new blood vessels. Congratulations!
The project RobotBodySchema (or “Robot self-calibration and safe physical human-robot interaction inspired by body representations in primate brains”), investigated by the team of Mgr. Matej Hoffmann, Ph.D., became a Partnering project of the Human Brain Project. Congratulations!
Dean’s Award for the Dissertation thesis was given to Ing. Lukas Neumann, Ph.D. (supervisor: prof. Ing. Jiri Matas, Ph.D.) Theme: Scene text localization and recognition in images and videos Congratulations!
Karel Zimmermann presents at ICCV 2017 paper K. Zimmermann, T. Petricek, V. Salansky, T. Svoboda. Learning for Active 3D Mapping.
Ing. Vladimir Kubelka, a PhD. student of Artificial inteligence and biocybernetics, presented a rescue mobile robot Charlie, which is involved in project TRADR, and invited the viewers to the “Night of scientists“(in czech only) in Studio 6, a Czech TV morning show. Many thanks for the representation of our faculty!
Zdenek Straka and Matej Hoffmann were awarded ENNS Best Paper Award at 26th International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (ICANN17) for their paper Learning a Peripersonal Space Representation as a Visual-Tactile Prediction Task.
Four papers, one as oral presentation, were accepted at ICCV2017 which is one of the most prestigious computer vision conferences with a very selective review process and low acceptance rate. Congratulations to Zuzana Kukelova, Jiri Matas, Michal Busta, Lukas Neumann, Karel Zimmermann, Tomas Petricek, Vojtech Salansky, and Tomas Svoboda.
Paper of authors K. Zimmermann, T. Petricek, V. Salansky, and T. Svoboda was accepted as oral presentation at ICCV 2017! We propose an active 3D mapping method for depth sensors, which allow individual control of depth-measuring rays, such as the newly emerging solid-state lidars. The method simultaneously (i) learns to reconstruct a dense 3D occupancy …read more
