Explore novel encoding and representations using spiking neural networks, to enable accurate, fast, and energy-efficient scene understanding.
Dynamic scene understanding will require complex processing of multi-sensor data to achieve both panoptic segmentation and event recognition. Moreover, some applications, such as drone or robotic autonomy, require ultra-low latency, low-power implementations.
The Ph.D. aims to investigate novel approaches, exploring faster, lower computation complexity and efficient sensor signal encoding, challenging the traditional signal processing pipeline. Specifically, we will use spiking neural networks (SNNs) and their intrinsically capability for processing temporal information. Sensor modalities used can include radar, event cameras, and others.
In summary, the candidate will focus on the following research questions:
Required background: Computer science or Electrical Engineering or Applied mathematics or Physics, or relevant. Proficiency in programming Python/C/C++/embedded. Any sort of artificial intelligence or radar theory background is useful
Type of work: 60% algorithm implementation, 30% Embedded HW programming, 10% benchmarking
