Research Support Staff for deep learning-based computer vision

Research, develop, test and validate methods for the joint inpainting of motion and dynamic shapes in video. The group is seeking a research assistant who will collaborate in a national project (MICINN/FEDER U project, reference PGC2018-098625-B-I00) where we work towards the automatic understanding of a 3D dynamic scene from a video sequence of it. The goal is to segment the dynamic scene into different objects, their individual sounds and their trajectories, infer the depth ordering of the scene along time -thus the occlusions and disocclusions-, complete the occluded objects, and generate new dynamic content.

3-months Researcher on fluid simulations for biomedical applications

 

The main task to achieve would be to give engineering support on several modelling projects related to fluid simulations in biomedical applications. Advance experience on extracting structural data from medical images, set up boundary conditions and build models in softwares such as Ansys in the medical domain is required. Knowledge about cardiac physiology, pathologies and devices would be beneficial. Good team-work skills is a must and a reasonable track-record on scientific publications is desirable.

Research Support Staff at CMTech

 

Applications are invited for part time Research Assistant in the CMTech group led by Prof. Xavier Binefa, Pompeu Fabra University.

Facial expressions have attracted a large piece of research with the end to extract the emotional estate of the people. Recently some works, in the field of affective computing, want to mix these expressions with physiological signals in order to better characterize this emotional estate. In this framework, we  want to use Deep Learning technologies to characterize the emotional estate in discrete and continuous (valence/arousal) representation; construct a system, able to run in mobiles and appliances with a low computing power; send the characterization obtained to a server with a database and do analytics.

Job description:

a) implementation of Deep learning algorithms and evaluate this performance and ability to run successfully in different appliances

b) engineering the client-server to get and process the data
