Description

The Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics at Università Ca' Foscari Venezia invites applications for a post-doc fellowship in: TITLE: Computer Vision for video surveillance with stereo camera networks SSD: INF/01 Tutor: Proff. Andrea Albarelli Agostino Cortesi

Abstract: Video surveillance, even when carried out using Computer Vision, is almost exclusively done through cameras or networks of cameras with a traditional sensor. The introduction of steroscopy, at the level of single sensor or network, can allow to obtain superior performances both in terms of the discriminability of the elements of the scene, which would be placed in a three-dimensional spatial context, and at an informative level, allowing to associate accurately to each object its orientation, position, speed and to reconstruct detailed spatio-temporal trajectories. Although studies have already been done in this sense, with this research we seek to advance the state of the art on three aspects. The first is the definition of trackable features that are particularly suitable for being reidentified both between stereo cameras, in the same temporal instant, and in the same camera, at successive temporal instants. The second is to define a general framework for the simultaneous matching in the spatial and temporal domain of specific features. The third is the use of machine learning techniques specifically developed to discern distinct objects in the spatio-temporal domain and to reconstruct coherent trajectories of the same object, even among multiple sensors in the network.

The research may be carried out in English. The fellowship is intended to provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to pursue his/her own research while benefiting from the range of expertise at Università Ca' Foscari Venezia.

Who can apply

Prospective candidates are expected to hold a master’s degree in Computer Science or related disciplines.

Ca' Foscari encourages applications from researchers with positive evaluation in all the criteria in individual proposals such as Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions - Individual Fellowships/ERC Starting Grants/FIRB (Italian Fund for basic research investments)/SIR (Scientific Young Independence Research) or similar. Researchers having successfully completed by 30/04/2018 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions - Individual Fellowships/ERC Starting Grants/FIRB (Italian Fund for basic research investments)/SIR (Scientific Young Independence Research) or similar funded projects are warmly encouraged to apply.

Duration of contract: 12 months approximately starting: July 2018 Stipend: The research fellowship amounts to 23.367,00 Euros per year, including taxes and social charges. 2 Deadline for submission of applications: 19/06/2018, 12.00 noon.

How to apply: Candidates should submit:

1. The application form;

2. A CV in European format, duly dated and signed;

3. A copy of a valid identity document (either Identity Card or Passport);

4. (If available) Evaluation Summary Reports of Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions - Individual Fellowships/ ERC Starting Grants/FIRB (Italian Fund for basic research investments)/SIR (Scientific Young Independence Research) individual proposals having passed all the evaluation thresholds;

5. (If available) Details of Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions - Individual Fellowships, ERC Starting Grants, FIRB (Italian Fund for basic research investments)/ SIR Scientific Young Independence Research funded projects;

6. All documents, qualifications and publications relevant for the selection procedure (please, see the notice link). All the schemes of the quoted documentation are available on the website (link).

How to submit your application

Applications should be submitted by the online procedure, available on the notice webpage. The candidate, after the uploading, will receive a submission number and an e-mail acknowledging receipt of his/her application. The candidate if necessary could access the procedures for updating any data and materials by the link provided by the e-mail, in any case any updates must be made no later than the deadline 19/06/2018, 12.00 noon. Please note that the University can be contacted for any support needs by the candidate until 24 hours prior to the deadline.
