  • Biography

    Anoop was a postdoctoral researcher in the LEAR group at Inria from 2012-2015 where his research was on the estimation and tracking of human poses in videos. From 2015-2017, he was a Research Fellow at the Australian National University, where he worked on the problem of recognizing human activities in video sequences. Anoop is the recipient of the Best Student Paper award at the Intl. Conference on Image Processing in 2012. Currently, his research focus is on modeling the semantics of video data.

    • CV1178: Visual Content Synthesis

      We are looking for a highly motivated intern to work on developing deep learning algorithms for visual content generation. Successful candidate will collaborate with MERL researchers to design, analyze, and implement new algorithms, conduct experiments, and prepare results for publications. The candidate should have a strong background in computer vision and machine learning fundamentals. Prior experience and a good knowledge of the recent trends in deep learning methods is required. Familiarity with methods such as generative adversarial networks or variational autoencoders is a plus. The candidate should be comfortable implementing the developed algorithms in Python and should have prior experience working with frameworks such as Caffe/TensorFlow/Keras/Theano. The candidate is expected to be a PhD student in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or a related field, with relevant publication record. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply with their recent CV with a list of relevant publications and links to Github repositories (if any)
