It is with great pleasure that I invite you to join us to celebrate 30 years of CVSSP @ ‘Can Machines Think?’, an event showcasing the Centre’s research past, present and future.
Over the past 30 years CVSSP has become an international centre of excellence for training and research in Audio and Visual Machine Perception in collaboration with industry. Our research has pioneered new technologies for the benefit of society and the economy, with applications spanning healthcare, security, entertainment, robotics, autonomous vehicles, communication and audio-visual data analysis.
This celebration will include perspectives on the future of AI and Machine Perception from international leaders, with invited talks by CVSSP founder Professor Josef Kittler and high-profile CVSSP alumni. This will be followed by a panel discussion hosted by Professor Jim Al-Khalili on ‘Can Machines Think?’, and live demonstrations of the centre’s latest research activities.
Future plans and opportunities to collaborate with CVSSP will be highlighted, including the launch of our new CVSSP Centre for Doctoral Training in Audio-Visual Machine Perception, a multidisciplinary national industry-academic hub to train future leaders in AI and Machine Perception.
