johnpc – Posted on February 9, 2017 at 8:47 pm –


An exciting opportunity has opened up in the
Intelligent and Networked Systems Research Group in the School of
Engineering for a suitably qualified Postdoctoral Researcher to work on
innovative applications of image processing and Artificial Intelligence
for Assisted Living.

Assisted Living is concerned with the use of technological
solutions to improve wellbeing and quality of life for people in
residential environments. This emerging area of research is attracting
significant attention and investment from both the Government and
industry due to its vital role for future health and care services.

The project will utilise a new bespoke research
facility, the Port-Eco House, to develop techniques for recognition of
Activities of Daily Living (ADL) from optical sensor data in real-life
residential environments. The aim of this work is to develop research
demonstrators and prototype systems that can be used in normal
residential settings to ensure health, safety and wellbeing of
occupants.

This project builds on prior research work on Assisted Living
carried out in the Intelligent and Networked Systems Research Group and
aims to capitalise on the University of Portsmouth’s commitment to, and
investment in, the priority research area of health and wellbeing. You
will be working as part of a vibrant team of academic staff and research
students in the School of Engineering, with excellent facilities,
growing research profile, and strong industry links.

The successful candidate will have in-depth knowledge and
experience of using image processing and/or Artificial Intelligence
methods (such as machine learning and/or data mining),
and
will be expected to contribute to research outputs and activities,
including publications, seminars, conferences, and research funding
bids.
