    Der Girls’Day – Mädchen-Zukunftstag ist ein bundesweites Projekt zur Berufs- und Studienorientierung von Mädchen. Am alljährlichen Aktionstag lernen Schülerinnen Berufe oder Studienfächer kennen, in denen der Frauenanteil unter 40 Prozent liegt. Am 25. April 2024 bekamen die Teilnehmerinnen zwischen 09:00 - 15:00 Uhr erneut die Gelegenheit, die Welt einer Wissenschaftlerin aus verschiedenen Standpunkten zu sehen. Gemeinsam mit dem Institut für künstliche Intelligenz beteiligten wir uns mit einem vielseitigen Angebot zu den Bereichen Bilderkennung, Chatbots und der künstlichen Intelligenz in Spielen. Zudem gaben die Forschenden Einblicke in ihren Alltag und beantworteten viele Fragen zur Anwendung und Funktionsweise von Künstlicher Intelligenz. Wir hatten eine Menge Spaß und freuen uns bereits auf das kommende Jahr. Wir bedanken wir uns bei allen Teilnehmerinnen und Mitwirkenden!

  • July 25 - - October 25, 2023
    Our lab has a long tradition in contributing the international standards like mp3, AAC, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, AVC, HEVC, VVC, DASH and MPEG-G defined by the Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG), also known as ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29/WG2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and 11. From October 13th to October 19, this group will meet for its 144th meeting in Hannover. It is the third time after 1988 and 2008 that MPEG with its more than 400 researchers comes to Hannover and TNT.

    1st and 3rd at BBO-Challenge@NeurIPS'20

    Prizewinner: Difan Deng and Marius Lindauer et al.
    AutoML.org & IOHprofiler, featuring the switching squirrel. After fixing a minor bug, our Switching Squirrel achieved a strong 3rd place at the black-box challenge at #NeurIPS2020 (#AutoML and Hyperparameter Optimization). On the warm-start friendly leaderboard, our Squirrel was even ranked 1st and was awarded an extra prize money. Our Squirrel combines ideas from (i) (simple) meta-learning by recognizing known configuration spaces, (ii) a diverse portfolio of acquisition functions, surrogate models and data transformations for Bayesian Optimization and (iii) differential evolution for a greedy final stage. It is the outcome of a joint collaboration between the groups from AutoML.org (tnt@Leibniz University Hannover and University of Freiburg) and IOHProfiler (Leiden University and Sorbonne University).

    1st and 2nd places at ABAW-Competition

    Prizewinner: Felix Kuhnke, Lars Rumberg, Jörn Ostermann
    In the FG-2020 Competition: Affective Behavior Analysis in-the-wild (ABAW) researchers from TNT achieved two strong 2nd places (for action unit and valence arousal estimation) and one 1st place for categorical emotion recognition. The goal of this competition was to extract human emotion from "in-the-wild" videos. Our work was presented at the IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG) 2020, 16-20 November 2020.
