Research collaboration between Qualcomm and UvA

Our Mission


The mission of the QUVA-lab is to perform world-class research on deep vision. Such vision strives to automatically interpret with the aid of deep learning what happens where, when and why in images and video. Deep learning is a form of machine learning with neural networks, loosely inspired by how neurons process information in the brain. Research projects in the lab focus on learning to recognize objects in images from a single example, personalized event detection and summarization in video, and privacy preserving deep learning. The research is published in the best academic venues and secured in patents.
