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
