Wiebe Van Ranst
Wiebe Van Ranst was born on the 9th of November 1990 in Bornem, Belgium. In 2013 he got his master’s degree in Electronics-ICT. Both Wiebe’s bachelor’s and master’s thesis were about GPU processing which was still a very small field at the time. Starting a PhD was a logical continuation of this. Wiebe started his PhD in 2013, after finishing his master’s thesis, under professor Joost Vennekens. His main interest then mainly focused on artificial intelligence in general and GPU computing. In 2016 Wiebe briefly worked on a start-up company called obtronics, focusing on computer vision, the technology of which was one year later taken over by the company RoboVision. During this experience Wiebe’s interests shifted towards GPU processing for computer vision, and later also computer vision itself. His research was then also supervised by professor Toon Goedemé. Wiebe is currently active as a post-doctoral researcher in the EAVISE research group of KU Leuven. Currently, his research is on applying neural nets on embedded hardware.
In this talk Wiebe will talk about recent research together with a Master student of his, about real-world adversarial samples.
