  1. Presentation of Set Function for Time Series and Topological Autoencoders at ICML 2020

    This week we presented two of our papers at ICML 2020, it was a great experience to talk with others about our research and to think of future directions and applications of our methods. I want to use this page to point out reference materials for these publications. …


  2. Summary of Talks and Posters from ICLR 2020

    This years ICLR was was special for me (and for many others as well) as it was the first virtual conference I have ever attended to (and will given the current situation with COVID-19 surely not be the last). At the virtual ICLR, posters were replaced with short prerecorded videos of 5 minutes where the authors briefly present their work. These videos can be accessed at any time independent of the “poster session” in which was possible to talk to one or more authors of the paper. One benefit of the conference being completely virtual is definitely that it allows to spread out looking at the “posters” over a longer time (if willing to sacrifice the possibility to talk with the author in a virtual poster session). …


  3. Project: simple-gpu-scheduler - easy scheduling of jobs on multiple GPUs

    Our research group has multiple servers each equipped with multiple GPUs. Unfortunately, these are not connected together in a cluster infrastructure, but instead, GPUs are assigned to individuals or on a per-project basis. This makes the execution of many jobs using multiple GPUs difficult. …


  4. Organizing projects and notes with vimwiki and VimR

    After a long time of absence I decided to reactivate my blog! So here comes another post related to optimizing the workflow of a PhD student in Computer Science. …


  5. Setting up a Neovim and pipenv based Python development environment

    I think everybody has been there after some time: …
