Partners: UvA en Qualcomm
QUVA-lab is a joint research lab by UvA and Qualcomm, the world-leading provider of processer and radio technology for mobile devices and especially smartphones. Its mission 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 videos. 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 establishment of the QUVA-lab was motivated by Qualcomm's acquisition of UvA spin-off Euvision Technologies during the summer of 2014. The research lab's management team is comprised of Max Welling, professor of Machine Learning at the UvA, Arnold Smeulders, professor of Computer Vision at the UvA, and Cees Snoek, principal engineer at Qualcomm and associate professor at the UvA.
