Keynote lecture and 7 papers at 12th IEEE/IES HSI…

A team from our department participated in the 12th International Conference on Human System Interaction IEEE HSI 2019 (Richmond, USA, June 25-27). Prof. Jacek Rumiński presented the keynote lecture titled: Augmented Perception. Prof. Mariusz Kaczmarek, Dr. Adam Bujnowski and Dr. Tomasz Kocejko participated as experts in the very interesting discussion panels:

  • Panel 2: The Future of Brain-Computer Interfaces”: Dean Krusienski(VCU), KATHRYN Holloway (VA hospital), Tomasz Kocejko (Gdańsk University of Technology), Douglas P. Murphy(VAMC), Young IL Seo(VAMC),
  • Panel 3: Rehabilitation Technology and Human System Interaction”: Cang Ye (VCU), Mariusz Kaczmarek (GUT), Adam Bujnowski (GUT), Mizanoor Rahman (UWF), Paul A. Wetzel (VCU).

As a team we presented 7 accepted papers on:

  1. Detection of the Oocyte Orientation for the ICSI Method (Magdalena Mazur-Milecka, Emilia Kaczmarczyk, Lukasz Wrobel, Patryk Przybylski, Marika Trudnowska, Aleksandra Podwojcik, Monika Jagiello, Krzysztof Lukaszuk, Jacek Ruminski)
  2. Estimation of electrode contact in capacitive ECG measurement (Adam Bujnowski, Mariusz Kaczmarek, Jerzy Wtorek, Kamil Osinski, Domnika Strupinska)
  3. Optimal ECG lead for deriving respiratory signal (Piotr Przystup, Artur Polinski, Adam Bujnowski, Tomasz Kocejko, Jerzy Wtorek)
  4. Sensors integration in the smart home environment – a proposal to solve the problem with user identification (Mariusz Kaczmarek, Adam Bujnowski, Kamil Osiński, Artur Poliński, Tomasz Kocejko)
  5. Influence of Thermal Imagery Resolution on Accuracy of Deep Learning based Face Recognition (Maciej Szankin, Alicja Kwasniewska, Jacek Ruminski)
  6. Can Eye-tracking provide useful information on the skills acquisition by the radiology residents (Tomasz Kocejko, Tomasz Gorycki, Artur Polinski, Adma Bujnowski, Mariusz Kaczmarek, Jacek Ruminski, Antoni Nowakowski, Jerzy Wtorek)
  7. The influence of image masks definition on segmentation results of histopathological images using convolutional neural network (Kamil Janczyk, Tomasz Neumann, Jacek Rumiński).


International Summer School on Deep Learning – 5 days…

The International Summer School on Deep Learning was organized by our Department between 2nd and 6th of July, 2018. It was very interesting event with 9 invited lectures, 14 mini-courses and many other attractions. The very interesting course was focused on the inference training using Intel/Movidius Neuro Stick. Each participant has received a stick sponsored by Intel and by the local organizers.
There was a great interest between potential participants. We could accept only 60 participants, but we have received much more applications. The participants were representing about 20 countries. During the event, there were many attractions like football competitions, deep learning challenge, “pierogi party”, Gdańsk sightseeing, and many other. Next year we will organize the second edition of the school. More information is presented at:

Awards during HSI 2018!

This year, the 11th edition of the Human System Interaction conference was held in Gdańsk, Poland from the 4th to 6th July. The conference covered the theory, design and application of human‐system interaction in the areas of science, education, business, industry, services, humanity, environment, health, and government. Additionally, the parallel event, Summer School on Deep Learning was organized to make the HSI Conference even more attractive for students and young professionals. As an effect, almost 200 people from 20 countries attended both events, mostly young participants.

During the event 4 IEEE IES awards have been presented for students and young professionals. One of the awards was granted to Alicja Kwasniewska from our Department for the paper:

Mingshan Wang, Tejaswini Sirlapu, Alicja Kwasniewska, Maciej Szankin, Marko Bartscherer, Rey Nicolas, “Speaker Recognition using Convolutional Neural Network with Minimal Training Data for Smart Home Solutions”, presented during the conference by Alicja Kwasniewska and Maciej Szankin from Gdansk University of Technology, Poland and from Intel, San Diego, USA

Additionally, best papers awards were presented to a few teams that received the best evaluation results (3 blind reviews for each paper). Two teams from our Department received the Best Paper Awards:

1.) Krzysztof Czuszynski, Alicja Kwasniewska, Maciej Szankin, Jacek Ruminski
Optical Sensor based Gestures Inference using Recurrent Neural Network in Mobile Conditions

2.) Adam Bujnowski, Kamil Osinski, Artur Polinski, Tomasz Kocejko, Jerzy Wtorek, Alexey Andrushevich, Electrical propterties of bath solution mixtures
