Dr. Daras Interview in ERT Proto Programma about EPIKOINONO and GRACE

Συνέντευξη στο Πρώτο Πρόγραμμα της ΕΡΤ και συγκεκριμένα στις δημοσιογράφους κ. Αρετή Μπίτα και κ. Ιωάννα Νιαώτη παραχώρησε ο Δρ. Πέτρος Δάρας, αναλύοντας τις προκλήσεις αλλά και τους στόχους των έργων Επικοινωνώ και Grace του εργαστηρίου. Σχετικά με το έργο Επικοινωνώ, ο Δρ. Δάρας δήλωσε πως στόχος του έργου είναι η ανάπτυξη μιας εφαρμογής για έξυπνα κινητά και ταμπλέτες που θα συμβάλλει στην εύκολη, αποτελεσματική και αμφίδρομη επικοινωνία μεταξύ κωφών και ακουόντων σε πραγματικό χρόνο. Στα πλαίσια του έργου έχει δημιουργηθεί…

Dr. Semertzidis is Guest Editor of the Information Special Issue “Indoors and Outdoors Content-Based Localization”

Dr. Theodoros Semertzidis is guest editor of the Information special issue titled “Indoors and Outdoors Content-Based Localization”   In the era of the abundance of information and content sharing, a strong need for geo-locating an event from images or videos without GPS information is constantly emerging. Citizen journalism, fact-checkers, climate change, and ecology organisations, as well as law enforcement organisations fighting criminal activities and trafficking, all need the localization of captured content in order to save lives or debunk misinformation. This…

Real time communication between deaf and hearing individuals – Epikoinono article in Reader.gr

Το έργο Επικοινωνώ στοχεύει στην υλοποίηση ενός συστήματος, με τη μορφή μιας εφαρμογής για έξυπνα κινητά ή ταμπλέτες, που θα έχει ως στόχο την εύκολη, αποτελεσματική και αμφίδρομη επικοινωνία κωφών και ακουόντων συνομιλητών σε πραγματικό χρόνο. Ο πρωταρχικός στόχος του έργου αποτελείται από την αναγνώριση της ομιλίας του κωφού συνομιλητή, η οποία θα γίνεται στην Ελληνική Νοηματική Γλώσσα. Στα πλαίσια του έργου θα σχεδιαστούν καινοτόμες μέθοδοι βαθιάς μάθησης (Deep learning) που θα στηρίζονται στην ανάπτυξη μεγάλης κλίμακας συνελικτικών και αναδρομικών…

VCL Stands Out in the ICMCIS 2021 Drone Detection Challenge

VCL Stands Out in the ICMCIS 2021 Drone Detection Challenge   The International Conference on Military Communication and Information Systems (ICMCIS) organized by NATO Communications and Information Agency announced a data challenge asking participants to track, classify and identify Class I UAS as they fly within a defined area, from data provided by the available sensors. The drones had to be tracked, to show their location and velocity, classified to indicate their object type (e.g. drone, bird) and identified to…

RESCUER Kick-off Meeting

The H2020 project RESCUER is planned to Kick-Off on July 2021. RESCUER “first RESponder-Centered support toolkit for operating in adverse and infrastrUcture-less EnviRonments” is addressing the call “DRS-02-2020-OPEN: Technologies for first responders”. RESCUER aims to design and develop a First-Responder-centered technology toolkit that will empower the next-generation of First Responders (FR) by enhancing their operational capacity and safety, specifically in adverse conditions, both environmental and infrastructure-wise. Dr. Dimitris Zarpalas will be acting as the Technical Manager of the project.

VCL Among the Winners of the Open Optimization Competition 2020

VCL has Received the Second Prize in the Open Optimization Competition 2020, Held in GECCO 2021   The Open Optimization Competition 2020 concerns code contributions made to the Nevergrad and IOHprofiler open source tools. Nevergrad is an open source platform for derivative-free optimization, while IOHprofiler is a tool for benchmarking iterative optimization heuristics such as local search variants, evolutionary algorithms, model-based algorithms, and other sequential optimization techniques. VCL’s contribution to the Nevergrad platform was the introduction of a benchmark for…
