The ELLIS unit Leuven comprises the research activities of five highly active faculty selected for academic excellence and complementarity of research areas. The focus of the unit is to develop a fast conduit between key application areas, core machine learning technologies, and real-time implementations on edge devices. The research focuses on advancing machine learning methods such as representation learning, continual learning, neural network compression and discrete optimization methods suitable for optimized edge implementations. In addition, it focuses on applications such as computer vision, self driving cars, and cultural heritage, natural language processing and multimodal data modeling, as well as chip design, resource efficient machine learning processing, and health applications in close collaboration with the KU Leuven Medical Imaging Research Center.
