The 2020 European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV 2020) is the top European conference in the image analysis area. One of their workshops aims to bring together researches from the fields of adversarial machine learning, robust vision and explainable AI to discuss recent research and future directions for adversarial robustness and explainability, with a particular focus on re

Sara Rojas Martínez is a 24-year-old Biomedical Engineering graduate from Bogotá, Colombia. Since childhood, Sara was fascinated by robots, technology, and artificial intelligence (AI). Her interest in technology motivated her to pursue a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. After obtaining her bachelor's degree from Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, she realized that she wanted to do something related to AI and humans, so she also pursued her master’s degree from the same university.

Teaching has the power to test the limits of one's knowledge. Teaching algorithms to learn using machine learning is making it possible for cars to do away with human drivers in the near future, but this has also opened up new questions about the limits of our knowledge of the brain and learning.
