Crail: Accelerate data processing workloads with high-performance distributed ephemeral store (open-source Apache incubator project), Dr. Robert Haas, Department Head, Cloud and Computing Infrastructure, IBM Research - Zurich

Deep Learning for Computer Graphics, Muzahid Hussain, University of Stuttgart

Robust 3D Pose Estimation of Humans and Objects for Augmented Reality, Bugra Tekin, EPFL

From neurons to roads - machine learning for detection of curvilinear structures, Agata Mosinska, EPFL

Automatised Prediction of Convolutional Neural Networks Performances without training across multiple different datasets, Roxana Istrate, IBM Research

Learning to Find Good Correspondences, Eduard Trulls, EPFL

Geodesic Convolutional Shape Optimization, We train Geodesic Convolutional Neural Networks to emulate a fluidynamics simulator. This lets us introduce a new type of surrogate models to optimize aerodynamic shapes, which is more flexible, more powerful and more scalable than previous approaches, Pierre Baqué, EPFL
