Our Researchers on the move

The members of the DMML group have been on the move over the last months, participating in different activities such as: summer schools, international collaborations and invited talks.

Jeet participated to he summer school entitled ProbAi-2023 , that took place in Trondheim, Norway at the beginning of June (11-17th) 2023. Its objective is to bring an intermediate to advanced level “summer” school with a focus on probabilistic machine learning. The workshop covers topics such as probabilistic models, variational approximations, deep generative models, latent variable models, normalizing flows, neural ODEs, probabilistic programming, and much more.

Why focusing only in summer schools and not attending Autumn schools as well? Jeet and Imahn attended the  2023 Chalmers AI Research Center Workshop for Structured Learning, that took place in Göteborg, Sweden, at the end of October (23th-25th). The experience was greatly nurturing!

To complete the exploration of Scandinavian countries, Greg attended the International Teacher Week organised in Helsinki, Finland, by our partner University of Applied Sciences Haaga-Helia. During the five days of this event, teachers were able to network, share experiences and best practices as well as meet our students and staff in a different academic and cultural context and give guest lectures.

Moreover, in relation to his research project CoORDinates, Greg was organising and hosting a special session in the International Conference of Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation, held for 2023 in Nuremberg, Germany. The special session was focusing in "Open Research Data and Reproducibility in Indoor Positioning Research". Moreover, he had the pleasure to give an invited talk on the same topic topic at the invited talk series of at the Competence Center Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIRO) of the Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (THWS)., in Würzburg, Germany. 

Our mobility was not only kept within Europe, but it turned to be intercontinental. Alexandros  had the chance to visit our colleagues from the Tokio University in the Japanese capital. The purpose of the visit was to accelerate our collaboration within the context of our common project of Grey Box Modelling, that is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation under the Strategic Japanese-Swiss Science and Technology Program.
