PhD Scholarships in Visual SLAM and Computer/Robotic Vision and Machine Learning for visual recognition

The Australian Centre for Visual Technologies (ACVT-now AIML) at The University of Adelaide has 12 PhD scholarships available for both local and international students interested in pursuing a PhD. These Scholarships are funded from an ARC Laureate Fellowship to Prof Ian Reid entitled “Lifelong Computer Vision Systems”, and an ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision, with Investigators Prof Reid, Prof Chunhua Shen, Dr Gustavo Carneiro and Prof Anon Van den Hengel.
