[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD position in AI & robotics at Inria
We are looking for a PhD student to work with us in Flying Co-Worker - a project about a drone handing and fetching objects to humans.
The PhD research topic is about probabilistic activity/gesture/intention recognition & prediction.
Building on our previous work on activity recognition & gesture prediction, this time the challenge is to do it from the onboard camera of the drone.
The candidate will join the team LARSEN in Inria, located in Nancy (France).
The team LARSEN consists of more than 20 international researchers, phd, engineers and interns, working in robotics & machine learning. The team has access to several robots (humanoid Talos, iCub, mobile robot Tiago, Franka, flying robots..), motion tracking equipment (Xsens MVN suit) and computing facilities (clusters, grid 5000, …).
Nancy is a student-friendly town, 1h30 by train from Paris, with lots of student activities.
The ideal candidate has a MS in computer science, applied mathematics, machine learning or robotics, has excellent coding skills (C++/python/ROS/git) and loves probabilistic and machine learning models.
