Showcase Event 2015

Another successful end of year annual Showcase event, organised by Amr Ahmed for the 4th year.

At the University of Lincoln, School of Computer Science. (6th and 7th May): Annual Showcase Event for the School of Computer Science,

Several companies attended the event, including Google UK, Siemens, QinetiQ, mass, Artsgraphica, Heritage Lincolnshire, to name a few.

They were impressed by the level and quality of the presented work, as well as how students presented and engaged with questions.

PhD Studentship – “Object and Action Recognition”

Summary:  “Object and Action Recognition Assisted by Computational Linguistics”.

The aim of this project is to investigate how computer vision methods such as object and
action recognition may be assisted by computational linguistic models, such as WordNet.
The main challenge of object and action recognition is the scalability of methods from
dealing with a dozen of categories (e.g. PASCAL VOC) to thousands of concepts (e.g.
ImageNet ILSVRC). This project is expected to contribute to the application of automated
visual content annotation and more widely to bridging the semantic gap between
computational approaches of vision and language.

Deadline: 20th March 2015.

A PhD studentship is advertised at

Object and Action Recognition Assisted by Computational Linguistics

The research is collaboration between University of Kingston (Digital Imaging Research Centre) and University of Lincoln (DCAPI group)
