PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in Computer Vision with Deep Learning for Human-Machine Collaboration – DTU Compute

Learning visual recognition models requires huge amounts of data, especially when relying on data-hungry deep neural networks. These data need to be manually and passively annotated by humans. This labeling procedure is one of the most important steps in a machine learning pipeline and is tedious, expensive, and susceptible to noise leading to erroneous labels. We aim to establish a deeper human-machine collaboration for all stages of the learning pipeline via multimodal labeling and learning. The goal of this project is to leverage information from different modalities that naturally occur near web images to assist the image annotation.  You will develop state-of-the-art multimodal models for self-supervision with human-in-the-loop text supervision. This PhD project will be supervised by Associate Professor (DTU).

PhD position summary/title: PhD position in Frequency Modulated Optical Phased Array for Fast CO2 Sensing – DTU Electro

Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is a 1-3D sensing technology that can be used for remote sensing of e.g. distance, velocity or chemical composition of a gas or solid. Typically, LiDAR designs comprise a multitude of moving parts (e.g., an assembly of lasers, optics, electronics, and detectors) on a mechanically rotating stage. The need to assemble and align all these parts leads to high costs and relatively low manufacturing volumes, while the wear and tear on the mechanical components limits long-term reliability. To solve these problems, the trend is to go for higher levels of integration enabled by semiconductor technologies and move away from discrete and mechanical components. Hereby, also fast spatial scanning of the laser beam is enabled as detailed below. DTU Electro at the Technical University of Denmark is seeking a candidate for a PhD position to research a fast 2D beam steering LiDAR based on integrated 1D optical phased array (OPA), implemented for environmental CO2 gas sensing. The PhD student will participate in an international team in an EU-funded Doctoral Network project called NiteLiDAR. The project consists of 10 Ph.D. students at 3 universities, an international R&D organization, and a company. The project has partners from four different EU countries. All 10 Ph.d. projects are within the overall theme of photonic and electronic integrated circuits for next-generation LiDAR technologies.

A slow-down in improving the efficiency of digital computers is now showing up as an alarming increase in energy consumption. This is particularly visible in machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) applications that require massive parallelism. Not only may this limit access to computing power in developing parts of the world, it is also a glooming challenge due to the environmental impact of the big-data revolution. QUARCOM’s goal is to face such challenge by combining theory and experimental expertise to push the frontier of computing platforms and quantum technologies.
