Learning Vision-based, Agile Drone Flight: from Frames to Event Cameras

Autonomous quadrotors will soon play a major role in search-and-rescue and remote-inspection missions, where a fast response is crucial. Quadrotors have the potential to navigate quickly through unstructured environments, enter and exit buildings through narrow gaps, and fly through collapsed buildings. However, their speed and maneuverability are still far from those of birds and human pilots. Human pilots take years to learn the skills to navigate drones. Autonomous, vision-based agile navigation through unknown, indoor environments poses a number of challenges for robotics research in terms of perception, state estimation, planning, and control. In this talk, I will show how the combination of both model-based and machine learning methods united with the power of new, low-latency sensors, such as event-based cameras, allow drones to achieve unprecedented speed and robustness by relying solely on the use of passive cameras, inertial sensors, and onboard computing.

Benazous Bradia

Perception, localization and mapping for Autonomous Driving

Benazouz Bradaï received his PhD degree in multisensor fusion in 2007 from Haute Alsace University in France. From 2007 to 2011, he was Algorithm Engineer and Expert for ADAS functions including Lighting Automation, Traffic Signs/lights recognition by camera and multi sensor fusion. Since 2011, he has been working on Automated Driving Innovation developments as Senior Expert and Innovation Platform Manager. His main research interest is Automated Driving with several scientific contributions in multi-sensors fusion, precise localization and mapping and Automated Driving Functional/SW architecture. He is a member of various professional associations including ADASIS Forum, SAE and SIA in France .

Henning Müller

Connecting visual information with semantics for learning from weak labels in histopathology images

Henning Müller studied medical informatics at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, then worked at Daimler-Benz research in Portland, OR, USA. From 1998-2002 he worked on his PhD degree in computer vision at the University of Geneva, Switzerland with a research stay at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. Since 2002, Henning has been working for the medical informatics service at the University Hospital of Geneva. Since 2007, he has been a full professor at the HES-SO Valais and since 2011 he is responsible for the eHealth unit of the school. Since 2014, he is also professor at the medical faculty of the University of Geneva. In 2015/2016 he was on sabbatical at the Martinos Center, part of Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, USA to focus on research activities. Henning is coordinator of the ExaMode EU project, was coordinator of the Khresmoi EU project, scientific coordinator of the VISCERAL EU project and is initiator of the ImageCLEF benchmark that has run medical tasks every year since 2004. He has authored over 600 scientific papers with more than 16,000 citations and is in the editorial board of several journals and since 2020 is a member of the Swiss National Research Council. .
