We are delighted to announce that Dr. Grigorios Anagnostopoulos has been awarded a funding under the Spark funding scheme of the Swiss Nation Science Foundation (SNSF), for his project "Eratosthenes: Deep generative modeling for indoor and outdoor positioning with fingerprinting methods".
The aim of Spark is to fund the rapid testing or development of new scientific approaches, methods, theories, standards, ideas for application, etc. The relevant criteria for the award of Spark grants are the originality/novelty of the idea, the unconventionality of the proposed research project, the scientific quality of the project and the potential for significant impact.
The ambition of the Eratosthenes project is to integrate the recent advancements of the field of generative modelling within the application domains of indoor and outdoor positioning. More specifically, the aim is to mitigate the barrier of the data collection requirement of fingerprinting localization methods through generative modelling.
More details will soon be available in our group's website, so stay tuned!
