VISion Understanding and Machine intelligence - VISUM 2021 - is the ninth edition of a summer school focused on Computer Vision and Machine Learning fields. This edition is organised by INESC TEC, and as in the last year, this will be a fully virtual event.

The online courses, with both theoretical & practical sessions, will be conducted by world-renowned experts covering their research topics. Aside from the theoretical relevance of the lectures, the covered material will guide you in building your own AI system within a competitive challenge, organised in partnership with FARFETCH. The VISUM school aims to provide a stimulating learning opportunity for students, young researchers and professionals with interests in Computer Vision and Machine Learning. VISUM's target audience is therefore:

M.Sc. and Ph.D. students
Researchers and Post-doctoral scholars
Industry professionals with (research) interest in computer vision
... and anyone who wants to discover avant-garde topics

Those with previous contact with the introductory topics of Computer Vision and Machine Learning can expect to enhance their knowledge. Meanwhile, those with no previous contact should see VISUM as an opportunity to get into one of today's most vibrant fields.
