Preliminary Program

Sunday January 19, 2020

Location: University of Tromsø - The Arctic University of Norway (Location TBA)

12:45 Pre-registration

13:00 - 18:00 Mini Deep Learning School

The Mini Deep Learning School will consist of 2 x 1.5 hour talks. The 1st talk is a brief Introduction to Deep Learning, introducing concepts such as CNN, RNNs as well as unsupervised Deep Learning models. The 2nd talk will describe the development of deep learning methodology mainly within the context of industrial power line inspection using optical images from UAVs, involving the development of novel a multi-stage detection and classification pipeline. Then, a new line-segment detector network will be presented, called LS-Net, to detect the power lines themselves, explaining in detail properties of convolution that enables this type of network. The LS-Net is fully convolutional and is trained solely on synthetic images. Finally, some recent developments within prototypical networks for few-shot learning will be presented.

Discover Northern Lights at Sommarøy 20th January 2020

Sommarøy is a natural gem by the ocean, at the outer coast, a nice one-hour drive from Tromsø. A vibrant and traditional coastal community, where hunting, fishing, and trapping has been a part of daily life.

We invite to dinner in beautiful surroundings. The dinner will be served inside but you will have the opportunity to take a walk outside.

Experience the North-Norwegian winter with Aurora Borealis. (We hope!)

Dress code: Casual (the environment is rough but nice!)

Price: NOK 1090 per person;

Duration: 4 hours

Pickup/Drop off: Scandic Ishavshotell 18:30/23:00

Included: Transport (75 minute each way), dinner buffet and 1 glass of wine/beer/mineral water.
