New opening for a PhD position on 3D face tracking and gaze modeling
The research will be conducted in the project TRACOME ("Robust face tracking, feature extraction and multimodal fusion for audio-visual speech recognition and visual attention modeling in complex environment") funded by the Swiss Science Foundation. The PhD candidate will work on the design of new methods for robust face tracking under natural head movements using 3D deformable models, the tracking of gaze directions, and its application to attention modeling in human-human or robot-to-group of human interaction scenarios. The work will be done in collaboration with the LTS 5 laboratory of EPFL, which will handle the audio-visual speech recognition task of the project.
