Plenary Talks

The vision subsystems in the TrimBot2020 gardening robot
Date: Wednesday, May 4

Robert Fisher has been an academic in the School of Informatics (originally in the former Department of Artificial Intelligence) at University of Edinburgh since 1984 and a full professor since 2003. He received his PhD from University of Edinburgh (1987), investigating computer vision in the former Department of Artificial Intelligence. His previous degrees are a BS with honors (Mathematics) from California Institute of Technology (1974) and a MS (Computer Science) from Stanford University (1978). He worked as a software engineer for 5 years before returning to study for his PhD. He has been researching 3D scene understanding since 1982, and has worked on model based object recognition, range image analysis and parallel vision algorithms. Prof. Robert Fisher is an IAPR Fellow.


The TrimBot2020 gardening robot was designed to work outdoors in varying lighting conditions. The robot also needed to perform various tasks: model the garden, navigate without collisions, itentify and servo the vehicle to trimming locations, and identify and servo the cutters to trimming targets. Each of these tasks led to a different computer vision approach. This talk will give an overview of each of the systems, which included 2D intensity, 2D-to-3D, and 3D point cloud processing, using both traditional and deepnet algorithms.

Isabel Trancoso is a full professor at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST, University of Lisbon), and the President of the Scientific Council of INESC ID Lisbon. She got her PhD in ECE from IST in 1987. She chaired the ECE Department of IST. She was Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Speech and Audio Processing and had many leadership roles in SPS (Signal Processing Society of IEEE) and ISCA (International Speech Communication Association), namely having been President of ISCA and Chair of the Fellow Evaluation Committees of both SPS and ISCA. She was elevated to IEEE Fellow in 2011, and to ISCA Fellow in 2014. Her recent research includes speech analysis for heath applications, microblog translation, privacy preserving speech mining, lexical and prosodic entrainment in spoken dialogues and disfluency detection in spontaneous speech.

Machine Learning Security: Attacks and Defenses
Date: Friday, May 6

Battista Biggio (MSc '06, PhD '10) is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Cagliari, Italy, and a co-founder of Pluribus One, a startup company developing secure AI algorithms for cybersecurity tasks. His pioneering research on adversarial machine learning involved the development of secure learning algorithms for spam and malware detection, and computer-vision problems, playing a leading role in the establishment and advancement of this research field. On these topics, he has published more than 70 papers, collecting more than 5600 citations (Google Scholar, Oct. 2020). Dr. Biggio regularly serves as a reviewer and program committee member for several international conferences and journals on the aforementioned research topics (including NeurIPS, ICLR, CVPR, IEEE Symp. S&P and USENIX Sec.), co-organizes three well-established workshops (AISec, DLS, S+SSPR) and he is Associate Editor for three high-impact journals (Pattern Recognition, IEEE TNNLS , and IEEE Comp. Intell. Magazine). He is chair of the TC1 on Statistical Pattern Recognition of the IAPR, a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the IAPR and ACM.
