Title: Postdoctoral researcher Zero-Example Deep Learning for VisionPosted: August 15, 2016
Company/Institution: University of Amsterdam
Location: Amsterdam

Description: A postdoctoral research fellow position in Zero-Example Deep Learning is open in the Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam under guidance of Dr. Thomas Mensink, starting as soon as possible. The goal of the research position is to study zero-example learning, that is learning without (explicit) visual examples, by using inter-mediate visual representations and reasoning over the visual extend of novel categories. Most current zero-shot prediction systems, use deep convolutional network as feature extractor, yet do not exploit the knowledge encoded in the deep network further. The aim of this project is to devise methods for zero-shot learning directly using transfer within the deep network. The aim is to work on both image classification and video recognition.
