PhD and PostDoc Positions in 3D Machine Learning / 3D Vision (Prof. Dai)

3D Semantic Scene Understanding: The world around us exists spatially in 3D, and it is crucial to understand real-world scenes in 3D to enable virtual or robotic interactions with such environments. We investigate machine learning approaches to infer semantic understanding of real-world scenes and the objects inside them from visual data, including images and depth/3D observations.

Generating 3D Models From Visual Data: Imagine creating 3D photos, holograms, or your own custom video game content from a quick video observation. We develop generative 3D models from 2D or 3D observations, focusing on indoor environments.
