E-pi: Re-thinking Uncertainty and AI workshop

September 22 2023

The E-pi consortium is organizing a workshop entitled with E-pi: Re-thinking Uncertainty and AI, which will take place on 22 September 2023, TU Delft, the Netherlands. This workshop aims to discuss the current state, limitations, and future perspectives on the foundations of uncertainty and AI. It will gather voices from artificial intelligence, decision making, and engineering to discuss handling uncertainty in a principled, but practical manner.

E-pi UAI 2023 workshop

August 4 2023

The E-pi UAI 2023 workshop, focusing on epistemic uncertainty in artificial intelligence, took place on August 4, Pittsburgh, USA. The workshop was co-organised by Fabio Cuzzolin (OBU), Matthijs Spaan (TUD), Keivan Shariatmadar (KUL), Maryam Sultana (OBU), Kaizheng Wang (KUL), and Shirren KUdukkil Manchingal (OBU). For this workshop, we accepted 16 non-archival papers covering a wide range of topics. Four speakers, Prof. Gert de Cooman from Ghent University, Prof. Yarin Gal from Oxford University, Dr. Marco Zaffalon from IDSIA, and Prof. Aaditya Ramdas from Carnegie Mellon University were also invited to provide insightful technical talks and foster meaningful discussions on uncertainty in artificial intelligence.

All partners had the opportunity to present their Work Package(s), including the associated Deliverables and Milestones. Meanwhile, a technical talk on "Imprecise Decision Theory" was given by Dr Keivan Shariatmadar (KU Leuven).

The ROAD challenge: Event detection for situation awareness in autonomous driving

An ICCV 2021 Workshop and Challenge

October 10-17 2021

The goal of this workshop is to put to the forefront of the research in autonomous driving the topic of situation awareness, intended as the ability to create semantically useful representations of dynamic road scenes in terms of the notion of ‘road event’, itself inspired by the central computer vision notion of ‘action’. The workshop also aims to stimulate a change of paradigm in the field of action detection, by shifting the focus from the objects/actors themselves and their appearance to what they do and the meaning of their behaviour, as the concept of action is here extended to apply to human-operated machinery as an extension of the human mind.

E-pi kickoff meeting

March 15 2021

The new Epistemic AI EU Future Emerging Technologies (FET) project has started on March 1 2021.

The kickoff meeting took place on Monday 15 March in a virtual fashion, and hosted as speakers Prof Fabio Cuzzolin and Dr Andrew Bradley (Oxford Brookes), Dr Keivan Shariatmadat (KU Leuven), Prof Neil Yorke-Smith (TU Delft), Prof Hans Hallez (KU Leuven), Prof David Moens (KU Leuven),  Dr Matthijs Spaan and Dr Julian Kooij (TU Delft).

The project is coordinated by Prof Fabio Cuzzolin and has a duration of 4 years.
