Open Positions for PhD students

We are always looking for excellent researchers who are passionate about research and a PhD. The research focus of our chair is machine learning and perception (vision/audio/other sensor modalities). A current research topic is, for instance, "Lifelong and continuous learning in single and multi-agent systems with sporadic human feedback“. Apply (f/m/d) with CV and previous study grades.

Paper accepted at International Conference on 3D Vision (3DV) 2024

The paper titled "Towards Learning Monocular 3D Object Localization Using the Physical Laws of Motion" by Daniel Kienzle, Julian Lorenz, Katja Ludwig and Rainer Lienhart was accepted to the International Conference on 3D Vision (3DV) 2024. The paper describes a new method for localizing objects in 3D without the need for 3D ground truth. Instead, the method uses knowledge of physical laws to learn the task.

Paper for SG2RL @ ICCV 2023 accepted

The paper “Haystack: A Panoptic Scene Graph Dataset to Evaluate Rare Predicate Classes” by Julian Lorenz, Florian Barthel, Daniel Kienzle, and Rainer Lienhart is accepted at the First ICCV Workshop on Scene Graphs and Graph Representation Learning (SG2RL). The authors present Haystack, a new dataset for scene graph generation that tackles current shortcomings when evaluating with current scene graph datasets. Most notably, Haystack contains rare predicate classes and explicit negative annotations. Only through these properties can rare relationships be reliably evaluated. Based on the design of Haystack, the authors introduce three new scene graph metrics that can be used to gain more detailed insights about the prediction of rare predicate classes.
