[OPEN] [ISL_CV_HCI_VP_005] Fast semi-automatic rotoscoping for high-end VFX 

Technicolor hosts world’s leading visual effects (VFX) studios, creating high-end VFX for the advertising and feature film industries. The goal of this internship is to study, test and implement state-of-the-art algorithms and tools to help studio artists with the ubiquitous and time-consuming task of rotoscoping (cutting out objects from the background) in video shots. The intern will have the opportunity to work with and to enhance professional tools and frameworks. Check what we do at http://www.moving-picture.com/reels/vfx-breakdowns/.

Skills : Engineer or master student with a solid background in computer vision and machine learning; Strong mathematical background; Good programming (C++, python) and software design skills; Hands-on video compositing software is a plus; Good written/oral communication skills; Fluent in English

Keywords : Computer vision, object tracking, motion analysis, motion/image saliency, user interfaces

 

This internship is located in Rennes, France. If interested, please apply at stage.rennes@technicolor.com by sending us your resume and a cover letter with the internship reference in the email subject line.

[OPEN] [IML_CG_HCI_012] Design of a Tangible System for Virtual Object Creation in CGI 

Due to the massive use of CGI content for movies and other immersive experiences, it may be necessary to ease the way content is created. In particular today artists are using pen and mouse as interfaces with the computer.

In this internship we would like to investigate new interfaces, such as tangible interfaces, to ease and speed up the creation of assets. We expect that more natural interfaces, using touch, would be more suitable for this artistic process.

The intern will thus have i) to design and create a prototype as interface (an existing sensitive deformable actuator, such as a knit ball, maybe use as a first step), ii) connect it with a CGI creation tool and associated rendering engine, and iii) validate the system.

Skills : Electronics, Computer Graphics, Virtual Reality, C++ programming

Keywords : Virtual Reality, Tangible Interfaces

[OPEN] [_CV_HCI_VP_029] Contextual Interestingness of Media Content 

Knowing whether a media content, i.e., image or video, is interesting for a given viewer has numerous applications from assets management, improved education, to targeted advertising.

This internship proposal is a following of already existing reseach activities at Technicolor. It targets the improvement of algorithms for content interestingness prediction and the development and implementation of new algorithms for contextual interestingness prediction. These algorithms will be based on machine learning techniques such as deep learning. One expected output is to submit a system to the 2017 MediaEval (http://www.mutimediaeval.org) task on interestingness.

Skills : machine learning, computer vision, image processing, Python, C++, OpenCV. Audio processing skill would be a plus

Keywords : machine learning (deep learning), image & video processing, multimodal fusion
