The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded Vidi grants to ten researchers from the UvA and the Academic Medical Center (AMC-UvA, part of Amsterdam UMC). One of the recipients is Dr. Efstratios Gavves.
A summary of his research project:
Finding time in videos
Video is everywhere: in our phones, on Netflix or even in MRI. Today’s AI finds it hard to understand time in videos, making them unfit for future applications like autonomous driving or guiding medical devices and treatments. This research will study novel video algorithms that can find time in videos.
Like the other awarded researchers Stratis will receive 800,000 euros, with which he can develop his own innovative lines of research and set up a research group over the next five years. A total of 81 Vidi grants were awarded in this round from a total of 503 applications.
