Visual Intelligence Graduate School (VIGS)

Visual Intelligence Graduate School aims at connecting early carreer research fellows across our research institutions to strengthen research collaborations, networks and social interactions.

Social hangout at Visual Intelligence in Tromsø

The Visual Intelligence Graduate School (VIGS) is lead by and consists of early career researchers in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). VIGS fills an important gap in the education of researchers within this field, as it allows for rapid development and deployment of tutoring in a research field that evolves at a highly accelerated pace.

VIGS is focused on hosting events, courses, and workshops on very recent developments, research and practical skills for early career AI researchers, as well as promoting diversity and inclusion in the Norwegian AI community. We work towards facilitating collaboration and knowledge sharing across institutions and aim at being a natural meeting point for early career researchers both within Visual Intelligence and in the Norwegian AI community as a whole.

The official opening of VIGS took place during the Visual Intelligence Days 2021 in Oslo, 19-20 October.
