Mert Kilickaya
Biography I'm a first year PhD. student at QUvA Lab, The University of Amsterdam (UvA). QUvA Lab is a collaborative effort between Qualcomm and UvA, which is directed by Max Welling, Arnold Smeulders and Cees Snoek. My research interest is at the intersection of vision and language. Specifically, I am interested in developing visual representations that can be utilized for image captioning, visual question answering and visual dialogue systems. If interested, please find more details about me here:
