Student Assistant (f/m), 10hrs/week
to fulfill the tasks of preparing trials and providing support for the trial-coordination and scanning-facilities team and the trial related follow-up work.
We are creating the world’s most realistic human and animal avatars for use in research, film, virtual reality, and medicine. Using unique 3D & 4D capture facilities, machine learning, computer vision, and advanced graphics, we are modeling every nuance of how humans and animals look and move. We develop algorithms to estimate human shape and motion in images, videos, RGB-D sequences, etc. Our approaches define the current state of the art, and we are constantly pushing these methods and systems in order to achieve a better accuracy and more availability.
