PhD student position in computer vision: monocular human pose analysis The Computer Vision Laboratory at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, is looking for a researcher, interested in body pose analysis. ETH is one of Europe's leading universities. More info about our lab is found at http://www.vision.ee.ethz.ch The focus of the research will be on the detection of abnormal or rare situations, without prior training on such cases, like a person falling. It is our intention to build the resulting methods into a system that gives out a warning if such events happen at people's homes. One of the applications is to support elders in living independently for a longer period than would be possible without such automated supervision. This work is part of a European project.
