A Ph.D. Student Position in Deep Learning for Computer Vision and Robot Vision at U. Innsbruck, Austria

The Intelligent and Interactive Systems group (Prof. Justus Piater and Asst. Prof. Antonio Rodríguez Sánchez) is looking for a talented Ph.D. candidate.

This position is aimed at enthusiastic students about Artificial Intelligence. 3D sensing has become a major research field for machine learning thanks to its applicability in areas like robotics, autonomous cars or augmented reality. The PhD candidate will develop new methodologies and algorithms in deep learning aimed at computer and robot vision tasks that lead to new architectures and algorithms for vision-based robotic agents. The goal of this PhD position is to develop deep learning algorithms that, combined with neuroscience-inspired structures, can be used as a guidance principle to build core components of artificial systems with human-like capabilities. Areas of interest include 3D point-clouds, Capsule Networks, Spiking Neural Networks and other state-of-the-art deep learning strategies. Knowledge of Neuromorphic computation is a plus.

This is a university assistant position that includes minor teaching requirements.
