2017-2018 has been a very busy year and this website is completely outdated, so here is the wrap up of the most important things that happened:
  • I've been on leave at LIP6, Sorbonne Université for the full year
  • I defended my Habilitation in November 2017
  • Jérôme Fellus defended his PhD on decentralized machine learning using gossip protocols in October 2017, with high quality theoretical contributions.
  • We extended the approach to deep learning with colleagues from Sorbonne Université.
  • I started another project during my leave at Sorbonne Université on cross-modal retrieval using deep embeddings. This project in collaboration with Laure Soulier and Matthieu Cord, and part of the PhDs of Remi Cadene and Micael Carvalho, led to a publication at SIGIR 2018
  • I started a new project on using machine learning and machine vision techniques to reassemble historical artifacts fragments. In this project, I supervise a new PhD candidate, Marie-Morgane Paumard.
  • I'm organizing a special session on Image processing for Cultural Heritage at ICIP 2018 next October in Athens
  • Speaking of ICIP, I have two papers accepted, one by Pierre Jacob, who started his PhD on deep learning for image retrieval with Aymeric Histace and me in spring last year, and one by Marie-Morgane.
  • I'll be at CVPR next week presenting the latest work Diogo Luvizon on 2D/3D Pose Estimation and Action Recognition using Multitask Deep Learning. Diogo started a PhD in late 2015 on action recognition in videos, supervised by Hedi Tabia and me.
