Description: The Fine-Grained Visual Categorization Laboratory at Brigham Young University (BYU) invites applications for a fully-funded PhD position.
Research in Fine-grained Recognition:
The Fine-Grained Visual Categorization (FGVC) Laboratory at BYU is focused on developing computational representations and approaches for fine-grained recognition, precisely identifying objects at the finest levels of detail (e.g. genus/species/sub-species for biological organisms such as birds, fish or insects, the make and model of man-made objects such as cars, planes and cell phones, and also recognition of individual humans). Our lab collaborates with domain experts in these fields, seeking both to leverage their expertise and to apply our techniques to their real-world visual recognition challenges. Key areas of focus are pose-normalized representations and learning techniques geared toward
Application Instructions: Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Ryan Farrell promptly (see details here). Priority will be given to candidates submitting a completed application by December 15, 2014.
