[OPEN][RI-ISL_2019-CG-CV-VP-017] Augmented Reality Point Clouds: Real Hologram Experience

Color Constancy aims to estimate the color of light source in the image. Many image processing tasks such as scene understanding may benefit from Color Constancy by using the corrected object colors. The goal of this internship is to explore and propose a new framework based on convolutional neural network (CNNs) to achieve the illuminant estimation for color constancy processing. Comparison with traditional methods should be conducted through a user test

Skills : Matlab/Python/C programming, ideally with image processing expertise Ability to write well-structure and documented code Good written and spoken English Excellent team working skills as the internship forms a part of a larger project, involving many team members Ability to work independently

Keywords : Machine Learning, Deep Learning, SVM, Clustering, Color Constancy

 

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

[OPEN][RI-ISL_2019-CV-DM-VP-021] Deep Learning for Rotoscoping

Very recently deep learning approaches allowed developing very efficient approaches in various fields (e.g., image/video processing, computer vision, audio processing). This internship proposal targets the development of deep learning approaches for high-end visual effects. In this context, both the interaction with a user (roto artist) and the efficient propagation of the effect throughout a whole sequence are keys to achieve both a highly accurate and efficient process. The proposal will target these two aspects, interaction and spatio-temporal propagation in the context of deep learning segmentation and matting methods. Resulting algorithms might be integrated in a professional VFX software to help the colorists.

Skills  : machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, video/image processing, PyTorch, TensorFlow or Keras deep learning frameworks, Python or C++.

Keywords  : .machine learning (deep learning), video processing, computer vision, interaction, segmentation, tracking, rotoscoping, matting

[OPEN][RI-ISL_2019-CV-DM-VP-022] Deep learning for 3D face rig

This internship proposal targets development of deep learning approaches for high-end visual effects (generation and animation of 3D avatars for film studios). Recent techniques, such as MoFA, achieve good 3D face rig reconstruction from still images and videos. However, these face rigs only cover skin parts, missing eyes and mouth interior. To improve this, we propose to study the use of Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) to fill these parts.

Skills  : machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, video/image processing, PyTorch, Python

Keywords  : .machine learning, deep learning, video processing, computer vision

[OPEN][RI-ISL_2019-CG-CV-DM-024] Extraction of quadrupeds motion parameters from video

The goal of the internship is to apply deep learning techniques for the extraction of motion parameters of quadrupeds from video. In order to cope with the lack of ground truth, the approach will build upon both weakly and unsupervised learning. Biomechanical knowledge or possibly tiny manual annotation dataset might also be exploited. The motivation for this work is to develop a statistical model of the motion of some quadrupeds in order to synthesize plausible animation.

The context of this work is the VFX workflow for animated movies industry. This work is part of an effort to automatize the currently very manual process.

The objective is to design the model and the learning methodology for extracting the 3D coordinates of a moving quadruped in video.

The expected outcome of the internship are :
- A model with the quantitative evaluation of its performance
- A description of the approach which might lead to a publication or patent
- A demo which will visually display the produced 3D animation
