Fully Funded EPSRC and Swansea University PhD Scholarship: Exploring High-Resolution Temporal Correspondence in Video Instance Segmentation

Swansea University

Funding suppliers: Engineering and Bodily Sciences Analysis Council (EPSRC) and Swansea College’s School of Science and Engineering

Topic areas: Pc imaginative and prescient, synthetic intelligence

Challenge begin date: 1 January 2024 (Enrolment open from mid-December)

Challenge description: 

Video occasion segmentation goals at simultaneous detection, segmentation and monitoring of object cases in movies. Given a check video, the duty requires not solely the masks of all cases of a predefined class set to be labelled but additionally the occasion identities throughout frames to be related. Current strategies observe a detection and affiliation paradigm, which basically performs spatial priors’ estimation and a temporal stitching afterwards. This will likely hinder VIS within the occlusion and long-term movies. Excessive-resolution (HR) options seem like useful to determine small and or occluded objects in static photographs. Thus, it’s attention-grabbing to discover this helpful info which will profit VIS. On the similar time, HR function fusion at temporal stage to facilitate the long-term VIS stays open problem. This venture is motivated to design a latent house the place HR options of cases may be correctly fused at their temporal evolution. The analysis outcomes shall be additionally utilized to associated video-based duties akin to optical movement estimation, 3D reconstruction and 3D object detection.


Candidates should maintain an Higher Second Class (2.1) honours diploma or an acceptable grasp’s diploma with a minimal general grade at ‘Advantage’ in Pc Science, Arithmetic or a carefully associated self-discipline. In case you are eligible to use for the scholarship (i.e. a pupil who’s eligible to pay the UK fee of tuition charges) however don’t maintain a UK diploma, you may examine our comparability entry necessities. Please be aware that you could be want to offer proof of your English Language proficiency.
