The lab for Deep Learning activities with Marcus Liwicki.

The Ovation MindGarage is an independent "lab" under the guidance of Marcus Liwicki. It is connected to the teaching activities of Marcus in the area of deep learning, including the lecture "Very Deep Learning", his supervised projects and theses, and individual studies.

In this website we will put information about the research projects conducted at the Ovation MindGarage, as well as, relevant information about the infrastructure mainly sponsored by Insiders Technologies GmbH.
