Katja Schwarz

PhD Candidate in Computer Vision @ Tuebingen University and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems

I am a PhD student in the Autonomous Vision Group (AVG) at Tuebingen University, advised by Andreas Geiger. Prior to this, I was an undergraduate at Heidelberg University, where I worked with Bjoern Ommer. My research is in computer vision, particularly in the areas of generative models and continuous 3D representations.

Apr 1, 2021 I became part of the KI macht Schule team. We organize and teach courses about fundamentals of artificial intelligence at German schools.
Feb 23, 2021 I was featured in the Podcast Generally Intelligent by Kanjun Qiu and Josh Albrecht. We cover the role 3D generation plays in conceptual understanding, continuous functions as representations for 3D objects and tons of practical tips on GAN training.
Feb 4, 2021 I was invited to give a talk at Nvidia GTC - GPU Technology Conference.
Jan 15, 2021 I was elected student representative of our IMPRS-IS grad school.
Dec 5, 2020 I was selected to participate in the KI Camp organized by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Informatics Society (GI).
