The goal of this talk is to explain why these features are universal. [...] 2023 - 1:13:26. TH String Theory Seminar External link: Event details In : Infinite Distance Limits and Factorization

The measurements have attracted significant attention as the difference between the experimental world-average values of $R(D^*)$ and $R(D)$ and their theoretical prediction is at the level of three standard deviations [...] 2023 - 0:55:32.

In contrast to conventional image sensors, event vision sensors do not use a common sampling rate (=frame rate) for all pixels, but each individual pixel autonomously defines the timing of its own sampling points in response to its visual input by reacting to changes of incident light in continuous time.

Graphics means messaging, messaging means concurrency - which is one of the current "construction areas" for C++. [...] 2023 - 1:21:47.

The first images of the supermassive black hole M87* display a bright ring encircling the event horizon, which appears as a dark patch in its surrounding emission. But Einstein's theory of general relativity predicts that within this image there also lies a thin "photon ring" consisting of multiple mirror images of the main emission. [...] 2023 - 1:19:19.

However, for many safety-critical applications, as long as scientific research fields, the quantification of the uncertainty of DL model predictions plays a crucial role. In this lecture, I will introduce the basics of Bayesian Neural Networks, how they can tackle the problem of estimating model uncertainty, and the most common techniques for generalizing this method to deep neural networks.. 2023 - 0:47:16.

Many reports show that the current analysis models (and more generally, data processing interfaces) would not be able to efficiently accommodate the amount of data in the next few years.
