In recent years, self-supervised learning has emerged as a promising paradigm, offering a compelling alternative to the traditional reliance on extensive labeled datasets.
This presentation aims to provide an introduction and an insightful journey into the realm of self-supervised learning within the field of computer vision. To that end, we will navigate through the intricate landscape of this paradigm, tracing its evolution from the early pioneering approaches that paved the way for its adoption to more recent state-of-the-art techniques.

Our focus will be on uncovering the fundamental principles and core ideas that underpin these diverse self-supervised learning methods, empowering researchers and practitioners with the knowledge to harness its potential for transformative innovations.


About the Speaker

Nikos KomodakisNikos Komodakis holds the position of Assistant Professor at the Computer Science Department, University of Crete. He is also affiliated with the Institute of Applied & Computational Mathematics, FORTH, and is a researcher at the Archimedes Center for Research in Artificial Intelligence.
Previously, he served as an Associate Professor at Ecole des Ponts ParisTech and held roles as a research scientist at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and a visiting Professor at Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan.
His research focuses on Computer Vision/Image Analysis, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence.

About the EuroCC-2 project

EuroCC 2 will work to identify and address the skills gaps in the European High Performance Computing (HPC) ecosystem and coordinate cooperation across Europe to ensure a consistent skills base.

The role of EuroCC 2 is to establish and run a network of more than 30 NCCs across the EuroHPC Participating States. The NCCs act as single points of access in each country between stakeholders and national and EuroHPC systems. They operate on a regional and national level to liaise with local communities, in particular SMEs, map HPC competencies and facilitate access to European HPC resources for users from the private and public sector.

EuroCC 2 delivers training, interacts with industry, develops competence mapping and communication materials and activities, and supports the adoption of HPC services in other related fields, such as quantum computing, artificial intelligence (AI), high performance data analytics (HPDA) to expand the HPC user base.



This project has received funding from the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No 101101903. The JU receives support from the European Union’s programme Digital Europe and Germany, Bulgaria, Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg , Slovakia, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey, the Republic of North Macedonia, Iceland, Montenegro and Serbia.
