Activities
LEAR is one of the leading research teams in computer vision, with a focus on learning based approaches for visual object recognition and scene understanding, in particular, object category detection, analysis of humans, objects, and their motion in video, large-scale object recognition. This builds on a long-standing experience in image descriptors and learning techniques. See the team's website and publications.

Recently, the LEAR team has developed two state-of-the-art algorithms for tracking objects in challenging scenarios, e.g., when they undergo significant transformations and change in appearance (see ECCV 2014, ICCV 2015). The engineer is expected to optimize these algorithms and build efficient code that will be released publicly, in collaboration with the PhD student and researchers involved in this project. Extensive experimental evaluations need to be conducted to ensure that the code is robust.
