New opening for a PhD position in visual object categorization.

The Idiap Research Institute seeks qualified candidates for one PhD research position on computer vision and machine learning applied to robotics.

The Phd will focus on how to provide robots with categorisation models based on situated visual information and their associated affordances. The resulting algorithms should be able to learn continuously over time about new perceptual and semantic inputs, as well as new category models by exploiting existing priors. The research will be conducted within the context of a recently funded Swiss project including European partners.
