Professor Dr. Rob van Nieuwpoort of the System and Network Engineering (SNE) Lab and his team received €900K from NWO Perspectief to start a five-year project on efficient deep learning. The project of Dr. Van Nieuwpoort is part of a larger programme called Efficient Deep Learning (€7M), a project with in total 11 academic and 36 industrial partners. Together with three PhD-students, Van Nieuwpoort and three professors from the University of Amsterdam, the VU University and the Technical University in Eindhoven, studies how Efficient Deep Learning (EDL) can improve the applicability of deep learning for different industries.
