The VRG group has successfully helped to extend the official PyTorch ecosystem. The group developed the new Kornia Deep Learning library which recently have been added to PyTorch ecosystem. PyTorch is the 2nd popular deep learning framework in the world, so it is kind of big deal. One of the core developers of the kornia …read more
The group of Humanoid and Cognitive Robotics coordinated by Dr Matej Hoffmann opens a PhD position in the humanoid, cognitive, neuro-, and collaborative robotics research.
