About Me

My name is Tobias Scheck, I have a M. Sc. in Media Informatics and more than 15 years of experience in programming. Currently I'm a PhD candidate at the chair Digital Signal Processing and Circuit Technology at the Chemnitz University of Technology and work on computer vision algorithms.


Research Topics:
  • Supervised and Unsupervised Learning
  • Synthetic Data Generation & Unsupervised Domain Adaptation

You will find some references of my pictures also at b-lichtet. It's a project of some photographer friends and me to publish our photographs to the internet.
