Machine Learning Expert

Multi-Layer Wireless Solutions

The Multi-Layer Wireless Solutions (MLW) Research Area is active in the fields of multimedia and time-critical/broadband wireless communications: the two fields are respectively addressed by the MAIN (Multimedia Adaptation and Interaction), and BWA (Broadband Wireless Access) Research Units of MLW. MLW-MAIN activities concern the development of multimedia tools in a wide sense, including optimized encoders, automatic media processing and visual detection of events, visualization tools and multimedia applications (such as augmented reality). In these scopes we are looking for a candidate to research and implement novel machine learning and computational models to solve challenging real-world problems; the applicant will implement end-to-end experimentation, from algorithm design to extensive testing both offline and live.
