PhD student position in "Context Based Image Retrieval", BELGIUM


Contact: ann.dooms@vub.ac.be

Duration: 4 years
Starting date: as soon as the administrative steps are completed


Research Topic:

Content based image retrieval consists of finding similar images based on
an image query. The similarity between images is however application
dependent. Therefore, the context of the application should be
taken into account in the process of image retrieval. On the other hand,
the results of the image retrieval enrich the context information (e.g.
recommendation systems).

The topic of this PhD is the study and modeling of the interplay between
context and content based image retrieval in both directions based on
machine learning techniques.
   
Work environment:

The Electronics and Informatics department (ETRO)
(http://www.etro.vub.ac.be) of the Faculty of Engineering Sciences at the
Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) has a long-standing expertise
http://www.etro.vub.ac.be/Research/IRIS/Multimedia/ in image and video
compression, computer graphics, data transmission and data visualization.
The research will be conducted within ETROs
IRIS group (http://www.etro.vub.ac.be/Research/IRIS/), which is embedded
within the Interdisciplinary Institute for Broadband Technology (IBBT)
(http://www.ibbt.be).
 
Required experience and skills:

You are a civil engineer, mathematician or a computer scientist. You are
attracted by image processing and machine learning and have
knowledge/experience in digital signal processing. You have excellent
programming skills (Matlab/C/C++). You have good oral and written
communication skills. Fluency in English is a must, given the
international character of the department.
