PhD in Computer Vision and Machine Learning - zero-shot activity recognition
Problem Statement: A single visual and depth sensor, deployed in e.g. a kitchen, will observe a person performing their daily chores, such as washing the dishes, preparing a meal or cleaning. By learning these activities from one or more different kitchens, where people perform their chores differently, this project will target automatically identifying the expected activities in the new kitchen. As more (unlabelled) data is gathered, the solution aims to perform with accuracy comparable to that trained on labelled data in the new kitchen itself.
Applicant will work in a vibrant computer vision lab, with more than 15 PhD students and 5 postdoctoral researchers working in closely related topics. For an insight into the supervisor’s current and previous works, refer to: http://www.cs.bris.ac.uk/~damen
