Dynamic machine learning of human activities

This PhD position is one of the 19 prestigious Marie Curie fellowships for PhD and Postdoc positions that are available within iCareNet.

Position description: 

Static models of human activity are typically inefficient due to their required effort in development and inability to cope with changing concepts during deployment. At the same time, the use of sensors to acquire information in activity recognition systems is often inefficiently handled in an always-on mode. This project will investigate advances in intelligence theories to develop activity recognition and behaviour inference models that can cope with changing concepts. In addition, the fellow will contribute to PhD student coaching and investigates collaborations with industrial partners to leverage the technology.
Interested candidates are invited to submit their application material for one or more positions within the network. In addition, applicants are asked to provide a 1-page statement on their motivation to become part of this exciting network in PDF format by email to icarenet_apply@lists.actlab.ele.tue.nl The statement may be reviewed by all iCareNet partner organisations. Positions will be filled as soon as possible.
