The CMU Portugal Large Scale project iFetch will be part of this year’s edition of VISUM 2022 a Summer School focused on Computer Vision and Machine Learning that will take place onsite in Porto between July 10 and 16, organized by INESC TEC.
The iFetch team led by Ricardo Sousa (LinkedIn/Twitter), the project’s principal Investigator at FARFETCH, will support a Mentorship Program on Conversational Agents included in the event as one of the mentors. While attending the VISUM summer school week, one of the students will be challenged by Ricardo Sousa to work on a computer vision problem while getting acquainted with the latest developments in conversational agents.
“We have decided to join this initiative and support this mentorship program as it is an outstanding opportunity to inspire young researchers in Machine Learning and Computer Vision. Likewise, these initiatives are of paramount importance to us as it is iFetch objective to smooth the pathways between fundamental research and business. So we are delighted with this program and keen to start working with the team.”, explains Ricardo Sousa.
This event will be an inspiring opportunity for young researchers to get feedback from senior scholars and industrial researchers in Machine Learning and Computer Vision.
The Summer School will also host an Industry Day and iFetch will be one of the projects to be presented.
