DeCore (Deep Convolutional and Recurrent networks for image, speech, and text)

Participants : Jakob Verbeek, Maha Elbayad.

DeCore is a project-team funded by the Persyval Lab for 3.5 years (september 2016 - February 2020), coordinated by Jakob Verbeek. It unites experts from Grenoble's applied-math and computer science labs LJK, GIPSA-LAB and LIG in the areas of computer vision, machine learning, speech, natural language processing, and information retrieval. The purpose of DeCore is to stimulate collaborative interdisciplinary research on deep learning in the Grenoble area, which is likely to underpin future advances in machine perception (vision, speech, text) over the next decade. It provides funding for two full PhD students. Maha Elbayad is one of them, supervised by Jakob Verbeek and Laurant Besacier (LIG, UGA).


Participant : Karteek Alahari.

This is a collaborative project with POLLEN, a startup in the Grenoble area, which develops POLLEN Metrology, a software editor specialized in signal processing, hybrid metrology and machine learning for the automatic processing of heterogeneous data. This funding supports a postdoc to accelerate the introduction of artificial intelligence, and in particular computer vision, techniques, into the manufacture of new generation of microprocessors. Karteek Alahari and Valerie Perrier (LJK, UGA) jointly supervise a postdoc as part of this collaboration. This collaboration ended in 2019.
