CVDC 2020, the Computer Vision conference of the year, is scheduled for 13th and 14th of August. CVDC will bring together the leading experts on Computer Vision from around the world. The two-day conference will see an interesting line-up of speakers, talks, workshop and more. Organised by the Association of Data Scientists (ADaSCi), the premier global professional body of data science and machine learning professionals, it is a first-of-its-kind virtual conference on Computer Vision.
Here we bring 7 reasons why you should attend CVDC 2020.
Sign up for your weekly dose of what's up in emerging technology.
Full-day hands-on workshop with a certificate
CVDC 2020 will host a full-day workshop on deep learning for Computer Vision. Over the years, Deep learning has added a boost to the rapidly developing field of Computer Vision. It has brought about a lot of new applications. Therefore the workshop is an excellent opportunity to get a hands-on session on the concepts of deep learning and Computer Vision. The workshop will cover topics such as introduction to Computer Vision, deep learning, CNN, image recognition, transfer learning, object detection and advanced Computer Vision techniques such as NeuralStyle transfer and GANs.
By the end of the workshop, attendees will have an understanding of the concept of deep learning and its application in Computer Vision, knowledge of Deep Convolutional Neural Networks, understand the transfer learning frameworks and their real-life applications, thorough knowledge of GANs with their practical implementation, and more. Attendees will also get a certificate from ADaSci on successful completion of the workshop.
Get to meet International researchers in the field of Computer Vision
CVDC 2020 has an exciting lineup of experienced and renowned speakers from the world of Computer Vision. It will have Computer Vision researchers from across the globe who have developed interesting techniques in the field. It will have Vladimir Iglovikov, Sr. Computer Vision Engineer at Lyft who currently focuses on applying deep learning techniques to the Computer Vision problems at the Lyft’s Level5 Engineering Centre that is focussed on the development of self-driving cars. Some of the other speakers are Dan Malowany, head of Deep Learning Research at allegro.ai; Matthew Zeiler, founder and CEO at Clarifai; Anubhav Shrivastava, head of Data Sciences at Voot Viacom18; James Ray, Deep Learning Practice Leader at Deloitte; Suman Debnath, Principal Developer Advocate at AWS; and more.

Talks and sessions on the latest trends and research in the field
The 2-day conference will have talks and sessions to keep the attendees abreast of the latest trends and developments in the field of Computer Vision. Some of the topics that will be covered at CVDC 2020 are:
- detecting masked faces in the pandemic world
- deploying PyTorch models in Production on AWS with TorchServe
- best practices in machine learning and the art of research management
- challenges for Deep Learning in Medical Imaging and overcoming them
- how is Computer Vision improving healthcare
- a session on OpenCV AI kit, and more
Paper presentation from leading researchers
The conference will also see interesting paper presentations from the researchers in the field of Computer Vision. These will be the latest research in the area and focuses on promoting research in the field of Computer Vision. Paper presentations will foster scientific exchange between researchers, practitioners, scientists, academicians, and engineers in AI and its affiliated disciplines. The conference scope includes all subareas of Computer Vision and will see some interesting techniques and applications in the field across various domains such as healthcare, sustainability, transportation, and commerce. Some of the topics that will be covered are social distancing implementation for the COVID world, malware detection using CNN, and more.
Hackathon & Exhibitions
The conference will also host a hackathon exclusively for the attendees of CVDC, which will allow them to apply their understanding and knowledge of the technologies in Computer Vision and related subfields. The project will require the candidates to use deep learning techniques to predict the results. Not just a hackathon, the conference will also host some exciting exhibitions from leading companies in the field of Computer Vision.
Networking opportunities with Computer Vision researchers across the globe
CVDC is an excellent opportunity to connect and network with the researchers in the most trending technology. The virtual platform will allow attendees to have one-to-one conversations with the speakers and attendees just like our in-person conferences. It will also conduct Power Breakout sessions, allowing attendees to network efficiently. The attendees will have a lot to take away, both in terms of knowledge and networks from the Computer Vision developer conference.
Attend it from the comfort of your home
CVDC 2020 is virtual and allows you to attend it from the comfort of your home. While in-person conferences have their perks, one of the most significant advantages of the virtual conference is that it saves considerable time and costs spent on travelling.
