<![CDATA[Road Safety Week at TU Dublin ]]>Garda Shane Ryan discussing with students from Castleknock Community College the importance of road safety.
Irish Road Safety Week (IRSW) is taking place from 7th - 13th of October with various road safety activities taking place countrywide in the national drive to save lives. As part of IRSW, TU Dublin, in partnership with An Garda Siochana and the Road Safety Authority, held a two day event raising awareness of the dangers faced by every day road users, with a particular emphasis on how drugs and alcohol can impair the judgement of a driver. For the 600 second level students from Dublin 7, 11 & 15 that attended, the highlight was a live action demonstration of a road accident, which simulated a "real-life" accident situation. Using actors, the scene involved a two car collision, attendance of emergency services, assessment of the scene, casualty extraction - including roof removal, and drug and alcohol testing.
Adrienne Harding, event coordinator at TU Dublin "We are delighted to host this event at TU Dublin. Road Safety is such an important life lesson, which we all need to be aware of now more than ever before. We hope that this event will bring about awareness of Road Safety to young people who attended, most of whom will start to drive themselves very soon."

<![CDATA[TU Dublin will host the 21st Irish Machine Vision and Image Processing Conference (IMVIP 2019) from 28-30 August in Grangegorman ]]>
IMVIP 2019 is the annual conference of the Irish Pattern Recognition and Classification Society and the largest meeting of the computer vision research community across the island of Ireland. The conference attracts a large number of international participants and also includes several invited talks from leading experts in the field. Over the last five years, there has been increasing industry participation at the event; something organisers are happy to support again this year.

Conference attendees will learn about the latest innovations and ongoing research in the Irish machine vision community, enjoy many excellent opportunities to network with the key researchers in the country in this pivotally important sector. In addition, there will be ample opportunities for increased visibility within the academic community, with researchers, graduate students, and computer vision companies.
One of the keynote speakers at the IMVIP conference is David Moloney, Director of Machine Vision at Intel and a key mover at the intersection of image processing and Edge Computing. Among many other notable roles and achievements, David was the founder and CTO of Movidius, an Alumni of TU Dublin Hothouse.

Movidius is a highly successful Irish company who specialise in placing machine vision capability right next to the camera so that images could be pre-processed at the point of capture. This approach has several advantages, such as reducing the need to stream bulky video feeds into cloud storage for processing and interpretation.
Movidius technology has been adopted into INTEL Edge offerings. David will be talking about how INTEL Movidius technology such as Myriad2 and MyriadX can enable image recognition and deep learning to happen "at the network edge" with massive power savings and a lower cost while also reducing the network burden.

More information is available from the IMVIP website here.
