Computer Vision Expert

Multi-Layer Wireless Solutions

Description
The Multi-Layer Wireless Solutions (MLW) Research Area is active in the fields of multimedia and time-critical/broadband wireless communications: the two fields are respectively addressed by the MAIN (Multimedia Adaptation and Interaction), and BWA (Broadband Wireless Access) Research Units of MLW. MLW-MAIN activities concern the development of multimedia tools in a wide sense, including optimized encoders, automatic media processing and visual detection of events, visualization tools and multimedia applications (such as augmented reality). In these scopes, we are looking for a candidate who applies and extends state of the art computer vision algorithms to solve challenging real-world problems; the applicant will implement end-to-end experimentation, from algorithm design to extensive testing both offline and live.

Requirements and competences
• Computer Engineering or related field or Master’s Degree
• Expertise of at least one modern programming language such as Java, C/C++
• Expertise of at least one modern scripting language such as Matlab or Python
• Strong Computer Science fundamentals in data structures, algorithm design
• Strong Computer Science fundamentals in data structures and algorithm design
• Expertise of OpenCV library for computer vision with particular focus on the following issues:
   - object detection (including face detection and recognition), tracking and motion analysis (background segmentation, optical flow)
   - Feature points detection and matching, including marker detection for AR applications
   - Camera calibration, 3d reconstruction, stereo vision
   - Depth cameras, including Microsoft Kinect v2
• Good English, well spoken and written •
1+ years professional experience in software development

Preferred qualifications
• Knowledge of machine learning/deep learning algorithms and techniques
• Expertise of algorithms for processing of 3D point cloud, as output of LiDAR sensors, e.g. PointCloud library
• Experience working with GPU computing technologies such as CUDA and OpenCL
• Solid coding practices including good design documentation, unit testing, peer code reviews
• Experience building high-performance computational software
• PHD and experience abroad are a plus.

Other skills
• Teamwork
• Versatility and autonomy
