PhD Studentship in deep learning for mobile camera networks

Applications are invited for a PhD Studentship to undertake research in the area of machine learning and mobile computer vision for scene monitoring with multiple collaborative robotic or wearable cameras. The PhD project will focus on machine learning methods for people detection and tracking, scene analysis and activity recognition for assistive technologies.

All nationalities are eligible to apply for this studentship, to be started in or after June 2017. The studentship is for up to four years, and covers student fees as well as a tax-free stipend.

This PhD project is part of an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Centre for Intelligent Sensing and the Centre for Information Technology at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), Trento, Italy.

Closing date: 15 May 2017.

Past PhD opportunities


PhD Studentships in audio-visual intelligent sensing

Applications are invited for 2 (two) PhD Studentships to undertake research in the areas of computer vision and audio processing for people monitoring in multi-camera multi-microphone environments, and will be part of an interdisciplinary project on audio-visual monitoring for smart interactive and reactive environments. The Project will focus on methods for long-term people tracking, activity recognition, acoustic scene analysis, behaviour analysis, distant-speech recognition and understanding applied to individuals as well as groups. Such information will enable learning 'patterns of usage' of the environment, and patterns can in turn be used to adapt and optimise the sensing accordingly.

Closing date: 15 November 2016.

PhD Studentship: Computational analysis of eye-movements
School of EECS, Queen Mary University of London

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship, to conduct research into human eye-movements. The project will develop new computational models of visual behaviour, based on recent ideas from computer vision, spatial statistics and time-series analysis. The models will be tested in psychophysical experiments, and implemented in an open-source tool-kit.

Supervised by Miles Hansard (computer vision, http://www.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/~milesh) and Isabelle Mareschal (experimental psychology).

All nationalities are eligible to apply. Closing date: 1 April 2015.

PhD studentship in Geometric Modelling of 3D Point-Cloud Data

Applications are invited, for a funded PhD studentship, to undertake research into 3D point-cloud representations of objects and scenes. All nationalities are eligible to apply for this studentship, which will start in September/October 2014.

The project will be concerned with modelling data from outdoor laser-scanners and indoor depth-cameras, as well as from multiple-view reconstructions. The new representations will be designed to help answer scientific questions about the natural environment, ranging from the statistics of 3D scene-structure to the processes of landscape geophysics.

The closing date for the applications is 31 January 2014. Interviews are expected to take place during February 2014.
