Dr. Josef Šivic from the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC) of the Czech Technical University in Prague was awarded an ERC Advanced grant to conduct research on intelligent systems capable of learning in dynamic 3D environments. The project FRONTIER: Federated foundational models for embodied perception, will develop a new generation of large-scale neural models for machines that learn in a dynamic 3D world and interact with their surrounding environment. The recipients of this highly competitive grant, totalling up to €2.5 million over five years, have been announced today by the European Research Council (ERC). Josef Šivic is ranked by Research.com as one of the top computer scientists in the Czech Republic to which he returned from France thanks to his previous European-funded research project.
