Since November 2021, Yuta Ono (Ph.D. student at Iwate Prefectural University; Japan) completed his semester abroad with us in the research group at the Hagenberg campus. In addition to his dissertation in the field of three-dimensional analysis of human poses, he worked with us on computer vision methods in the context of the Amido project. For this purpose he worked on methods for segmentation of invariant information like roads and based on this the automatic registration using digital map services. Now that almost half a year has passed, the time has come to say goodbye. On behalf of the research group, we wish Yuta all the best for the completion of his PhD or his further career and look back on a wonderful time with him. Hopefully we will see each other again at one or the other conference.
But Yuta, is not the only international student with us in the research group. In early March, Anthony Alessi and Benito Lo Bue (undergraduate students from PXL University of Applied Sciences & Arts; Belgium) joined us in the AIST research group as part of their semester abroad. Anthony will be building on the results of the EpiMon project to further develop the epilepsy monitoring system. Benito is working in the area of robotics during his stay using the two humanoid robots NAO and PEPPER from the Human Centered Computing program. We would like to welcome both colleagues to our research group and look forward to working with them.
