PhD in Computer Vision for First-Person Videos
You will be joining a high-active research group with leading publications (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV) in finegrained video understanding. Details on my group’s latest research projects and publications can be found at: https://dimadamen.github.io/. This project will focus on the multi-modal nature of understanding actions using video, audio and natural language descriptions, utilising the large-scaled dataset EPIC-Kitchens. The student will be developing novel deep architectures as well as addressing problems previously unexplored in action recognition, particularly replication of perceived actions in a simulated environment. The work is part of an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship programme and will be conducted in collaboration with researchers at Nvidia.
Prior knowledge in machine learning and computer vision is essential to applying for this funded position. Interest in video understanding should be highlighted. I am looking for a student with strong mathematical and programming skills, willing to learn, hardworking and an active team player.
Candidate Requirements Applicants must hold/achieve a minimum of a first-class degree (or international equivalent) BSc, MEng or MSc degree in computer science or a joint computer science degree.
Basic skills and knowledge required:
• strong programming knowledge in Python, using PyTorch and/or Tensorflow
• prior experience in conducting research, within a student project or as part of a research
• strong mathematical knowledge
