[visionlist] LCD Monitors suitable with suitable temporal response


I’m wondering if there are alternatives to CRTs and the ViewPixx3D ($12,000 each) displays that can be used when fast response times are required for temporally varying stimuli. From this paper http://ift.tt/2llIYuM it seems that certain gaming monitors may be approaching the required quality level, are there any specific high framerate gaming panels that have come out in the last two years that approach parity with CRTs?

[visionlist] Postdoctoral research position in action/event recognition using deep learning (I2R, Singapore)

We are seeking an exceptional postdoctoral researcher to work on action/event recognition. The candidate will use deep learning techniques to tackle novel problems, going beyond
simple category labels to the hierarchical structure of temporally-extended actions and events. The candidate will work as part of a dynamic and multidiscplinary AI team, comprising scientists with PhDs from MIT, Stanford, CMU, UIUC, etc.
The position is available immediately in Singapore, at the Institute for Infocomm Research, A*STAR. The project is funded by a grant jointly awarded to Dr. Cheston Tan and Prof. Lior Wolf of Tel Aviv University, whose world-class work includes the DeepFace
project with Facebook.
Candidates must have a PhD in computer science or related fields. Strong programming and quantitative skills are required. Candidates must be proficient in spoken and written English.
The appointment will be for 1-3 years (possibly with extension), with internationally-competitive salaries and benefits. Other benefits include:
– Opportunities for research attachments with Prof. Lior Wolf at Tel Aviv University
– Funding for international conferences and training courses
– Collaboration opportunities with excellent network of international scientists (at MIT, Stanford, UIUC and elsewhere)
Interested candidates should send a CV, brief statement of research interests and three references to Dr. Cheston Tan (cheston@alum.mit.edu)
Position will be open until filled; send applications sooner rather than later if interested.
