All good things come in threes: Join our third Female Tech Leaders Speaker Night!
At the last two (one, two) Speaker Nights, we welcomed female founders and great women who have shown impressive career paths at renowned companies. We are going to change things up a bit this time. The December Speaker Night will consist of Tech Talks. Our goal is to bring the scientific and technological achievements of outstanding women to light. For that, we have invited two remarkable women who are currently conducting research at the Technical University of Munich.
Join us, as we spend an evening of inspiring talks, then close up with food, drinks and networking! Both men and women are invited to this event, since both genders can benefit greatly from the insights to be gained from our speakers and their experiences. Just make sure you sign up for a free ticket with the link provided!
Get inspired and learn something new about a technical topic from experts!
Marie Piraud, Post Doctoral Researcher, Medical Informatics, TU Munich
During her studies in fundamental physics, Marie got interested in multi-scale systems, which are intrinsically difficult to model both mathematically and numerically. After majoring in quantum physics, she spent 7 year investigating disordered materials as well as topological insulators in Paris, Grenoble and Munich. In 2016, she joined the Image-Based Biomedical Modeling Group of the Technical University of Munich, where she transfers those ideas to the medical realm. She works in particular on the development of methods combining model-based approaches and data-based machine learning techniques.
Marie also enjoys popularization of science and outreaching about her current research. At the speaker night, she will give an introduction on Machine Learning, and some of its medical applications.
Laura Leal-Taixé, Research Group Leader, Machine Perception, TU Munich
Laura studied Telecommunications Engineering in her hometown of Barcelona, but it was during an exchange year in Boston that she discovered her passion for Computer Vision and research. She then decided to pursue a PhD in Hannover, spent a year in Michigan as a research visitor and finally did two years of research at ETH Zürich before moving to Munich. At the Technical University of Munich she recently started her own research group after being granted the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award from the Humboldt foundation.
In her talk, she will present her research goals as well as her view of the role of Artificial Intelligence in society.
