Visual Intelligence congratulates associate professors Elisabeth Wetzer, Ali Ramezani-Kebrya, and Kristoffer Wickstrøm, who were recently appointed as principal investigators (PIs) at the research centre.

Each innovation area and research challenge at Visual Intelligence is lead by a team of PIs. Wetzer, Ramezani-Kebrya, and Wickstrøm will serve as valuable additions to their respective PI team by leveraging on their expert knowledge within AI and deep learning.

- It is a great opportunity to collaborate with colleagues across Norway in machine learning and creating real-world impact for our research, says Ramezani-Kebrya, who recently joined the "Explainability and reliability" PI team alongside Wickstrøm. Both Ramezani-Kebrya and Wickstrøm will work alongside senior research scientist Alba Ordoñez of The Norwegian Computing Center.

- I am very much looking forward to it and hope to contribute in as many ways as I can to Visual Intelligence, adds Wickstrøm.

Wetzer will be a part of the "Context and dependencies" PI team, collaborating extensively with professor Anne Solberg (UiO) and associate professor Benjamin Ricaud (UiT).

- I am thoroughly thrilled to accept this challenge and continue innovation-oriented research building on the already existing insights gained by previous VI research in this field, says Wetzer.
