Area: Intelligent Multimodal Interfaces
We are looking for exceptionally bright and motivated MS and PhD students to work on an international joint project that aims to build intelligent multimodal interfaces for military planning. The research draws from and contributes to machine learning, computer vision and speech recognition research with the eventual goal of creating natural and easy to use intelligent user interfaces. The objective of the project is to recognize spoken commands and interpret hand-drawn diagrams to infer military plans, hence past experience in speech recognition, computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning and human-computer interfaces is a plus, but not required. The work will be carried out in collaboration with:
The work will build on the principal investigator's previous work on sketch recognition at MIT, and will be completed at Koc University. There will be opportunities for short term collaborative visits and extended summer stays at University of Cambridge and Texas A&M University. The post covers the cost of tuition and includes a monthly stipend of up to 2500YTL.
Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis, although applicants are encouraged to contact the principala investigator and apply early to maximize their chances. Interested applicants should send a copy of their CV to .
