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 release DHP19. It is the first human pose dataset with data collected from DVS event cameras. This dataset was created mainly by Sensors Groups 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 2019 ICASSP IBM Best Student Paper award

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!

New PhD/Postdoc positions available

We have several new PhD and Postdoc positions available now or soon in a wide range of disciplines ranging from mixed signal neuromorphic sensor design to digital design for AI to advanced audio AI. See our open positions page for more details.
