Visual Intelligence kickoff

The program will be available shortly. Please check back later.

Visual Intelligence kickoff


  • For partners to better get to know each other’s scientific challenges and innovation needs.
  • For research partners to elaborate on the Visual Intelligence deep learning research challenges to facilitate future synergies across the innovation areas.
  • To lay a foundation to be followed up in planned workshops and concrete joint work.



Welcome and presentation of the research team at UiT, UiO and NR

09:15-11:30 Partner presentations
