Dextra and Slasher exhibited at ETH & EPFL OpenDays public science event

PhD students Min Liu and Yuhuang Hu devoted an entire weekend to showing off Dextra the robot hand that is unbeatable at the game of rock scissors paper, and Slasher the agile robot car for event camera driving. The exhibits were shown at the EPFL OpenDays public science and technology event in Lausanne. This event immediately followed the Sensors Group exhibit of Dextra at the ETH OpenDays for prospective high school students.

Shih-Chii Liu discusses "Neuromorphic Audition" at Logitech

Shih-Chii presented an overview of neuromorphic approaches to "always-on" audition at the Logitech Technology Summit on Audio Processing and Embedded Machine Learning, covering audio event sensors and our developments of SOA RNN architectures for continuous inference on streaming data.

Josep Margarit wins runner-up Best Demo award at ISCAS 2019

Josep Margarit receives the runner-up award for Best Demo at ISCAS 2019. The demonstration is on a portable microsensor fusion system with real-time measurement for on-site beverage tasting.  Congratulations!

DHP19 Human Pose Estimation Dataset from DVS event cameras released

We are happy to announce the release of DHP19. It is the first human pose dataset with data collected from DVS event cameras. This dataset was created mainly by Sensors Group students Enrico Calabrese and Gemma Taverni, in collaboration with Balgrist Hospital.

It has recordings from 4 synchronized 346x260 pixel DVS cameras and marker positions in 3D space from Vicon motion capture system. The files have event streams and 3D positions recorded from 17 subjects each performing 33 movements.

It also includes a reference Convolutional Network implementation for instantaneous human pose estimation, trained on DVS constant-count frames from the two frontal DVS cameras.

Stefan Braun receives IBM Best Student Paper award at ICASSP 2019

Stefan Braun is a recipient of the IBM Best Student Paper award for his paper titled "Parameter Uncertainty for End-to-End Speech Recognition" at the 2019 International Conference on Acoustics, Signal, and Speech Processing (ICASSP). He was also awarded the 2019 ICASSP IEEE Spoken Language Processing Student Travel Grant for this paper. The grant is administered by the IEEE Signal Processing Society. Congratulations!
