This 26 and 27 September 2017, I was involved in the kickoff event for European Researchers’ Night in Brussels #MSCAnight. With thousands of visitors, most of which were children, it was a smashing success! I have presented my research on machine learning and visual perception, and talked about visual illusions and teaching computers to see.

2016_sailors_projects_lambertoIn the past two weeks I have been involved as computer vision project mentor in the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory’s OutReach Summer program (SAILORS). SAILORS is a summer camp for high school girls and it is intended to increase diversity in the field of AI. SAILORS aims to teach technically rigorous AI concepts in the context of societal impact.

Check out SAILORS blog to know more about the program. SAILORS was also recently featured in Wired.

Lamberto Ballan - Stanford SAILORS 2015 - kNN tutorialI have just given a tutorial on kNN at the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory’s Outreach Summer program (SAILORS). SAILORS is designed to expose high school students in underrepresented populations to the field of Artificial Intelligence.

The slides are available on this page and the Matlab code is also available for download. This is an updated version of the code used in class and should work also on Octave.
