University of Surrey
Faculty of Engineering & Physical Sciences
Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing
Salary: Up to £32,796 per annum
(Subject to Qualifications and Experience)
This is your opportunity to join the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, one of the UK's premier research centres in Computer Vision. This position is available immediately for a period of 30 months.
The post is part of the EU project 'DIPLECS' which seeks to design a Cognitive Architecture that can learn how to drive a car by watching a human. The system will be demonstrated in two domains: providing driver feedback in a real car as part of an assisted safety system and in the autonomous control of model RC devices.
You will be responsible for the development of systems that allow object detectors and behaviour models to be learnt automatically from the observation of human operators, you will also investigate the dependency between these models to allow autonomous control or commentary. The focus will be upon the generic framework required to perform such learning with only 'weak supervision'. You should have a research background in computer vision or machine intelligence, experience of visual object detection or data mining would also be an advantage. You should also have the technical skills necessary to create new and exploit existing software tools for video analysis.
Informal enquiries are welcome and may be made to Dr Richard Bowden (r.bowden at surrey.ac.uk) or Professor Josef Kittler (j.kittler at surrey.ac.uk)
Benefits package includes relocation provision, final salary pension, childcare assistance and leisure facilities.
