CEA/INRIA (France): Postdoc (18 months) in computer vision and multimedia understanding

A postdoctoral position is proposed in computer vision and multimedia understanding at CEA (https://kalisteo.cea.fr/index.php/ai/) and INRIA (https://www.irisa.fr/en/teams/linkmedia)

-Duration: 18 months
-Position available from: June 2022 until filled
-Place: CEA is at Palaiseau, France (~20km Paris), INRIA is at Rennes, France.

Candidates:
· PhD in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing or other relevant fields
· Strong publication record, with accepted articles in top-tier conferences and journals of the domain
· Solid programming skills (pytorch/tensorflow). Publicly available project will be appreciated
· Ability to communicate and collaborate
· Experience on using GPUs on a supercomputer (e.g. with SLURM or similar tool) will be appreciated

To apply to the position, send a CV (including publication list or a URL pointing to it) and a cover letter to Hervé Le Borgne , Yannis Avrithis , Laurent Amsaleg and Ewa Kijak .

The postdoctoral associate will work on the representation of entities described by several modalities, with a particular emphasis on the use of visual data to help in search and linking of entities. The goal is to not only disambiguate one modality by using another, but also to jointly disambiguate both by representing them in a common space

We consider entities such as a person, a place, an object or an organization, that can be represented by different modalities, in particular by visual and textual content. However, a given mention of this entity is often ambiguous. For example, the mention «Paris» refers not only to the city of France (and a dozen of other cities in the world), but also to the model Paris Hilton and the Greek hero of the Trojan War. An additional visual content linked to the mention can greatly help to disambiguate, although the visual content itself carries other ambiguities. We also consider a third type of information, namely links between entities within a knowledge base. The task of Multimedia Question Answering needs all these three modalities to be solved.

The selected candidate will work in the context of the project MEERQAT ("MultimEdia Entity Representation and Question Answering Tasks")
