[visionlist] [ Internship ] Fellow position in Computer Vision for 3D mapping and scene understanding

Fellow position in Computer Vision for 3D mapping and scene understanding – [ Internship ]
Workplace: IIT Central Research Lab Genova

The Visual Geometry and Modelling (VGM) Research Line at IIT invites qualified applicants for a fellow position in Genoa under the supervision of Dr. Alessio Del Bue.

The VGM Lab mission is to provide computational tools for the large-scale understanding of data, this being sensed at the nano and up to the macro scale level. With a privileged focus on image and video data, the main lab goal is to research and apply methods to boost advances of life scientists and engineers in untangling and modelling the (big) data as provided by modern sensors (e.g. high-resolution cameras, time-lapse microscopy, 3D scanners).

We are opening a 6 months fellow position for graduated Master/Bachelor students to work on 3D mapping and object detection with Deep Nets using RGBD sensors (e.g. Google Tango devices).

The aim is to create an autonomous 3D scene understanding system on a mobile platform by programming and optimize Computer Vision algorithms already developed in the group. The final aim will be to obtain a working software using recent advancements in mobile sensing devices and image understanding technology. Candidates should have good programming skills in C/C++ and a general knowledge of Android development software framework. Knowledge of OpenCV and Deep Learning software frameworks are a plus but not a compulsory skill requested for this project.

The candidate will be also involved in research activities at IIT with the chance to be introduced in several projects ongoing.

Salary will be commensurate with the candidate skills and experience.

Please send the application including a CV with a brief description of programming projects and main accomplishments to pavis@iit.it quoting “Fellow VGM position 73408” in the email subject, by February 13, 2017.
