Title: PhD studenship - Complex urban area labeling using Very High Resolution optical imagesPosted: March 7, 2016
Company/Institution: IGN
Location: Paris, France
Department: MATIS lab.

Description: We aim to label complex urban areas. Using Very High Resolution (VHR) optical images, we focus on the most salient topographic objects, i.e., roads and buildings. In areas where a large amount of reference data is available, it is possible to compute deep-learning based models so as to recognize such objects. Then, these models will be propagated to areas where only few labeled instances exist. Finally, the classification obtained with our tailored architectures will be refined with a structured reasoning that includes detected geometrical patterns and a priori knowledge on the interaction between main urban elements. More details here.

Application Instructions: The candidate should belong to one of the country of the European Union or to Switzerland. Application should include:
  • a CV;
  • a motivation letter, linked to the PhD thesis topic ;
  • the recommendation letter of the responsible of the Master thesis (or equivalent) and any other relevant support letter ;
  • in a single PDF file to clement.mallet(at)ign.fr.
