One Master2 internship available at the GREYC Lab, Normandie University.

Pr. Christophe Charrier and Dr. Alexandre Ninassi are offering one
Master2 internship on Video Quality Assessment
in the compressed domain.


The aim of this Master 2 internship is to study Video Quality Assessment
(VQA) algorithms adapted directly into the compressed domain taking into
account the variability of codecs and the specificity of video coding.
Yet, instead of scoring the quality of video by a single value, a
continuous notation of the quality will be preferred. The problem of
perceptual video quality assessment is a significantly more complex
problem than the still image one for the following reason: while there
exist highly reliable models of still natural scene statistics, the
literature for regular natural video statistics models is almost absent.
For instance, the interaction between motion and spatio-temporal changes
is of particular interest, especially with regards to whether motion is
involved in masking distortions. The type of motion which occurs in a
video is a function of object and camera movements. One challenge is how
the aforementioned phenomenon can be modeled into the compressed domain?
The candidate will investigate how the design of existing relevant
features in the wavelet domain, frequency domain and/or spatial domain,
or temporal domain could be adapted in the compressed domain.
The use of Deep Learning to design such a VQA scheme could be
investigated too.

Candidate profile:
•    Master 2 student in computer science with specialization in
Computer Vision and Pattern recognition.
•    Knowledge in video compression standards (H.264 and/or H.265)
•    Good skill in Matlab, C, C++.

Applications should include the following:
•    Letter of interest
•    Official transcripts (with grades and ranking) for Master 1 and
Master 2 (or equivalent)
•    Scientific CV

•    Duration: 5 months
•    Place:  GREYC UMR CNRS, 6 Bd Maréchal Juin, 14000 Caen
•    Salary: 554.40 € monthly
