RNDr. Zuzana Kúkelová, Ph.D.
Neuron Award 2023 for Promising Scientists in Computer Science
Neuron Award 2023 for Promising Scientists in Computer Science. Awarded for research in the field of computer vision.
Zuzana Kúkelová is an expert in computer vision. He looks for efficient ways to solve complex mathematical equations that help robots and computers "see" better. It focuses on camera geometry, where its equations help robots understand where things are in space. The results of her research find applications, for example, in autonomous driving, in 3D reconstructions, or in mixed reality. Zuzana Kúkelová was a postdoctoral fellow at Microsoft Research in Cambridge and now works at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Czech Technical University in Prague. She is the first woman to receive the Neuron Award for promising scientists in the field of Computer Science.
