Fabien Baradel receives the runner-up (2nd place) PhD thesis prize given by AFRIF
A special mention (second place) was awarded to Fabien BARADEL
for his PhD thesis entitled "Structured deep learning for video analysis"
done at the University of Lyon under the supervision of Christian Wolf and Julien Mille.
In his PhD, Fabien worked on Structured Deep Learning by combining deep neural networks with structured graph-based approaches and with notions of causality (counter-factual reasoning).
He has collaborated with two different Canadian laboratories (Graham W. Taylor of the University of Guelph in 2017 and Greg Mori of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver in 2018), as well as with Facebook Paris (Natalia Neverova) and with Google Grenoble (Cordelia Schmid).
Fabien has published in top-level conferences such as CVPR, ECCV, ICLR and BMVC.
