PhD Position in AI-based Multi-camera Data Analysis

PhD Position in AI-based Multi-camera Data Analysis

Published Deadline Location
18 Mar 28 Apr Eindhoven

Job description

The PhD candidate will work within an international research project ELEVATION in cooperation with industrial partners from Netherlands and Belgium. The general goal of the project is to automate a free viewpoint generation of synthetic video streams from multi-camera setups in the broadcast domain. The PhD candidate will perform research with potential deployment of results in industrial products of Grass Valley and Adimec.

The goal of the PhD candidate is to research and develop AI models for multi-camera data analysis and synthetic video generation. Generation of free viewpoint synthetic video streams for multi-camera broadcast setups will enable a fundamental shift in the viewing paradigm for the viewers, since they can set their own arbitrary viewpoint for watching (e.g., personal camera/channel). To enable this breakthrough, three key challenges must be solved: (a) generation of free viewpoint video frames should run in real-time, (b) the FTV algorithm-cloud mapping should be efficient and scalable to support multiple viewers, (c) the synthetic video should be accurate and photorealistic.
