Research - NAVER LABS Europe

RESEARCH

We create new connections through advanced research and technology in vision, text, machine learning, UX and ethnography.
Our multidisciplinary approach to AI allows us to tackle challenges from different perspectives and gives greater meaning to our work.

Computer Vision

Visual search, scene parsing, human sensing, action recognition, pose estimation and lifelong learning for AR, robotics, search and autonomous driving.

3D Vision

In a connected world of people, robots and self-driving vehicles, we naturally need to have a good understanding of the 3D world we live in.

Search and Recommendation

Human-centric, multimodal strategies and modules built on accountable algorithms for transparency and trust.

Machine Learning and Optimization

Innovative models to design algorithms and imagine new tasks that push the boundaries and bring to life intelligent systems in our everyday lives.

Natural Language Processing

As the most natural and dominant mode of communication, we create language technology to seamlessly communicate with devices in a connected world.

UX and Ethnography

Getting a deep understanding of our environment to design services with which we can seamlessly interact.

Systemic AI

At the crossroads of AI and software engineering research, addressing the challenges of integrating AI/ML components.

A white box analysis of ColBERT

By dissecting the matching process of the recent ColBERT model, we make a step towards unveiling the ranking properties of BERT-based ranking models and show that ColBERT (implicitly) learns a notion of term importance that correlates with IDF.

Running into the unknown with RunAhead

Running into the unknown with RunAhead: finding pleasant running tours and intuitively navigating through them. The use of combinatorial optimization and UX design, together with head-tracking technology, provides a non-intrusive way of helping runners to discover new itineraries.

SuperLoss: Robust curriculum learning helps machines to learn like humans

A novel framework which uses individual sample losses as error measures to determine the relative difficulty of samples in a dataset. Can be plugged on top of existing neural network models to implement curriculum learning for any task, even with noisy datasets.
