Cyber Valley’s computer vision research community shines at leading global conference
27 papers accepted and four best paper nominations at CVPR 2021
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, the University of Tübingen and the Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence are making an impressive showing this week at the Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), with 27 papers accepted and four best paper nominations.
As Cyber Valley partner institutions, the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS), the University of Tübingen, and the Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence have consistently attracted outstanding computer vision researchers from around the globe, making the Stuttgart/Tübingen region one of the world’s top research locations in the field. In particular, Tübingen’s computer vision community has continued to grow in the past year, with impressive results.
Scientists from both institutions are making a strong showing at this week’s Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), with a total of 27 accepted papers and four best paper nominations. CVPR is one of the most competitive international conferences in the field, with an acceptance rate of around 25 percent. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the conference is running online until June 25.
“Over the past year, we’ve established new professorships and group leader positions in the field of computer vision. In so doing, we’ve expanded the scope of our research and further strengthened the Cyber Valley community. Our repeated success at major conferences like CVPR clearly shows that we are on the right path,” says Michael J. Black, Cyber Valley spokesperson and Director at the MPI-IS, where he heads the Perceiving Systems Department.
Since the Cyber Valley consortium was founded at the end of 2016, the dynamic ecosystem in the Stuttgart/Tübingen region has consistently gained momentum in the fields of machine learning, robotics, and computer vision. In addition to attracting world-class senior scientists, Cyber Valley’s graduate programs have quickly gained a solid international reputation among young researchers in the field of modern AI.
