Chair - András Horváth

András Horvath is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics at Peter Pazmany Catholic University. His research is mostly focused on computer vision and artificial intelligence, especially on the efficient implementation of modern machine learning algorithms with emerging devices. He took part in the DARPA-UPSIDE (Unconventional Processing of Signals for Intelligent Data Exploitation) project between 2012 and 2018, which aimed the development of an object recognition pipeline with oscillatory-based computing, implemented on emerging devices (e.g.: spin-torque and resonant body oscillators).

He is an author and co-author of more than 40 publications that appeared in various international journals.  He is an active Reviewer for various peer-reviewed journal papers. (e.g.: IEEE Transaction on Signal Processing, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and System, etc.). He is a member of the IEEE Circuits and System Society and the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.
