An interactive personal assistant for document visualization during meetings
The goal of the proposed PhD position is to study novel approaches to human-computer dialogue and document visualization, which meet the standards of efficiency and unobtrusiveness required from a personal assistant that is used during meetings. The PhD student will explore these approaches and implement them into a system that will be evaluated thanks to user-centric, task-based methods.
This position is supervised jointly by IDIAP and DIVA/University of Fribourg. The PhD candidate will register with the EPFL doctoral school. Candidates should have a strong background in computer science, preferably with notions of information retrieval, human-computer interaction, document visualisation, and natural language processing.
The IDIAP Research Institute is an independent, nonprofit research foundation based in Martigny (Valais, Switzerland), and affiliated to the EPF Lausanne and the University of Geneva. IDIAP is committed to leading-edge research and developments in the areas of Speech Processing, Computer Vision, Information Retrieval, Biometric Authentication, Multimodal Interaction and Machine Learning.
