Some new hardware

As our project is data-driven, it can use the resources of the Stuttgart Media University Institute for Applied Artificial Intelligence. Those resources have recently been upgraded. Meet the deep learning servers, each with four nvidia GPUs:

Offices are getting prepared

The project members will work in the new lab room of the Stuttgart Media University Institute for Applied Artificial Intelligence. The lab room is currently being furnished, and I have prepared a suitable decorative piece 🙂

Project team grows

We have found two excellent young researchers who are interested in working on the project. As soon as the contracts are finalized, we will introduce the new team members here on the project website.

Grant application approved

We have been informed by the German Research Foundation (DFG) that our grant application has passed peer review and the program board has deceided to approve our application. The research plan will be fully funded with no cuts.

The project can start in 2019.
