In particular, goals of the work will be the study, development, and validation of Computer Vision algorithms to
Automatically detect adaptive scene landmarks from image sequences;
Learn temporal models of the observed scene;
Accurately reconstruct scene maps based on integrating SLAM techniques and the temporal models.
A master degree in Computer Science or equivalent is required. Although not mandatory, a PhD degree would be an add-on. Fluency in written and spoken English is also required. For the themes considered in the project, a background in Computer Vision and Machine Learning is needed.
The work will be carried on at the DIBRIS, in Genoa.
