Do you want to advance the state-of-the-art research in computer vision systems using human-machine collaboration? The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) invites you to apply for a fully funded 3-year PhD position. The position is funded by the Sapere Aude: DFF-Starting grant. The position is offered at DTU, in the Department of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, at the Visual Computing Group, and will work closely with researchers from the Pioneer Centre for AI.
Learning visual recognition models requires huge amounts of data, especially when relying on data-hungry deep neural networks. These data need to be manually and passively annotated by humans. This labeling procedure is one of the most important steps in a machine learning pipeline and is tedious, expensive, and susceptible to noise leading to erroneous labels. We aim to establish a deeper human-machine collaboration for all stages of the learning pipeline via multimodal labeling and learning. The goal of this project is to leverage information from different modalities that naturally occur near web images to assist the image annotation. You will develop state-of-the-art multimodal models for self-supervision with human-in-the-loop text supervision. This PhD project will be supervised by Associate Professor (DTU).
During the PhD program, you will:
To succeed in this position, you should have the following required skills:
Excellent written and communication skills in English.
Salary and appointment terms
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years; start in Spring or Summer 2024.
