CVPR2022 paper reading - Balanced multimodal learning

August 07, 2022

Talk, Online, Tokyo, Japan

The Japanese Study Group on Computer Vision is a semestral conference in which researchers from all over Japan present the most recent topics in computer vision. In my talk, I introduce a paper from the International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR2022) that addresses the simultaneous learning of data coming from different modalities. This topic is very relevant in computer vision, as visual data is prone to learn at different speeds than other modalities, such as text and audio.

VAEs for multimodal disentanglement

May 15, 2022

Talk, Online, Tokyo, Japan

The Japanese Study Group on Computer Vision is a semestral conference in which researchers from all over Japan present the most recent topics in computer vision. In my talk, I introduce the variational autoencoders (VAE) as a way to learn latent representations of the input data, in particular, in the case of multimodal data (audio, video, text, etc.).

Artificial intelligence, computer vision, and multimodal data

April 06, 2022

Webinar, Online, Tokyo, Japan

In this webinar I introduce some notions of artificial intelligence and computer vision, in order to explain how machines are able to perceive the world around us. Initially designed to recognize simple patterns in images, artificial neural networks have become more and more complex, and more and more accurate. This allowed their introduction into a wide variety of sectors, ranging from medical to automotive.

Pursuing a research career in Japan

December 17, 2021

Panel discussion, Online, Tokyo, Japan

CCSE (Conference on Computer Science for Enterprise) is conference organized by the company CyberAgent. It is a place for company researchers to share their latest advances with their peers from other companies. I moderated and participated in a panel discussion about how non-Japanese researchers can pursue different types of career paths in Japan.

Doing research in Japan: experiences and opportunities

November 11, 2020

Webinar, Online, Tokyo, Japan

In this webinar, a group of researchers from Spain talked about our experiences living and working in Japan. We compared the research opportunities that Japan and Spain provide, and discussed about how is living in such a different country (anecdotes, advice, etc.).

Artificial Intelligence, from the Spanish and Japanese perspectives

October 08, 2019

Talk, Instituto Cervantes de Tokio, Tokyo, Japan

The Cervantes Institute in Tokyo is an organization to promote Spanish culture in Japan, and Spanish-Japanese collaborations. In this event, I presented some basic concepts about artificial intelligence (AI), and my experience in Spain and Japan as a researcher in AI. Then, I moderated a panel discussion along with Dr. Fernando Castaño Romero and Dr. Yoshitaka Ushiku, regarding how AI is present within society in Spain and Japan respectively.
