Vacancy for PhD candidate in Computer Vision Description of Activity

The QUVA Lab, established as part of the Informatics Institute at theUniversity of Amsterdam, invites applications for a PhD position inComputer vision description of activity. State-of-the-art automatic annotation of images, also from our lab,names objects (bike, road, wedding) in images with reasonable success.Activities (driving, cooking) are an active topic of research whereconsiderable progress is being made. Adjectives (blue, wet) andattributes (open roof, high-heeled) are much harder to grasp form a real challenge. The goal is to compose sharp descriptions of an image, such as ‘a bike is falling on the… read more

Qualcomm and University of Amsterdam open QUVA Lab

By completing a jig-saw-puzzle during the official opening on September 15, Senior Vice President Nagraj Kashyap and President Dymph van den Boom marked the start of the new public-private partnership between Qualcomm and the University of Amsterdam: the QUVA-lab. The mission of the QUVA-lab is to perform world-class research on deep vision. Such vision strives to automatically interpret with the aid of deep learning what happens where, when and why in images and video. Deep learning is a form of machine learning with neural networks, loosely inspired by how neurons… read more
