We make video search engines. With these search engines we participate in international competitions, often with excellent results. While good progress has been achieved over the past years, the video search engines are not precise enough, yet. We have been invited by SRI International and the University of Southern California to join the US ALADDIN program, whose goal is to develop a precise and efficient video search engine able to retrieve specific events involving people interacting with other people and objects. The ambitious goal of our project is to arrive at a video search engine capable to automatically retrieve complex events with high precision.
Within the project we have open positions for:
- A PhD candidate in Precise Visual Event Recognition
- A PhD candidate in Precise Video Event Retrieval
- A Post-doc in Efficient Spatio-Temporal Video Search
We will start reviewing applications on 20 December 2010 and hope to make a decision soon after that, but applications will continue to be accepted until all positions are filled.
