WHO WE ARE
At IIT we work enthusiastically to develop human-centered Science and Technology to tackle some of the most pressing societal challenges of our times and transfer these technologies to the production system and society. Our Genoa headquarter is strictly inter-connected with our 11 centres around Italy and two outer-stations based in the US for a truly interdisciplinary experience.
You’d be working in a multicultural and multi-disciplinary group, where Computer Vision, Computational Intelligence experts, Physicist and Engineers collaborate, each with their own expertise, to carry out common research.
The Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision (PAVIS) Research Line is coordinated by Dr. Alessio Del Bue who has extensive experience in Artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches to understand the physical space and the human behaviors within it.
The research focuses on Spatial AI (Perceive and understand autonomously the real physical world, both static and dynamic, with its corresponding spatial) and Social AI (Perceive and understand humans and their behaviors as observed by cameras in relation to the physical spaces they are interacting with).
We are looking for a fellowship candidate from either MSc or PhD programs to join our team and work on the MEMEX EU Project (https://memexproject.eu/en/) for the research and development of Knowledge Graphs to locate Cultural Heritage. Within PAVIS research line of IIT, you will work closely within a small team (~5 people) working on the MEMEX project with close supervision and a team spirit for a common objective. Beyond this you will receive experience in working in a Europe wide multi-partner consortium with social, technological and research partners.

Text-based detection of objects in images (zero-shot learning)
Few-shot Cultural Heritage detection using Knowledge graphs within AR
The activities may include building to improve open-access and crowd-sourced information such as Wikidata, OpenStreetMap, and Mapillary.
Within the team, your main responsibilities will be:
Develop algorithms and research to detect and locate Cultural Heritage;
Support the activities of the MEMEX project and its ambitious objectives;
Produce demonstrable output through app demos and/or publications.
