Trends in Computer Vision with Amir Zamir

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we close out AI Rewind 2019 joined by Amir Zamir, who recently began his tenure as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.

Amir joined us on the podcast back in 2018 to discuss his CVPR Best Paper winner, and in today’s conversation, we continue with the thread of Computer Vision. In our conversation, we discuss quite a few topics, including Vision-for-Robotics, the expansion of the field of 3D Vision, Self-Supervised Learning for CV Tasks, and much more! Check out the rest of the series at!

We want to hear from you! Send your thoughts on the year that was 2019 below in the comments, or via Twitter at @samcharrington or @twimlai!
