We're always on the lookout for highly talented interdisciplinary researchers to join our team.

There are currently two great opportunities for students to join SensiLab researchers in the following 8-week summer vacation projects:

 

Gestural Recognition for Music Performance

Project summary: The aim of this project is to allow the AirSticks – a gestural instrument for musicians and non-musicians – to work with an AI-based musical partner that dynamically learns a model that can respond to the human musician. The project will involve identifying how to capture gestures from the AirSticks in real time so that they can be interpreted by the AI music system.

Prerequisites: Third-year or Honours computer science student with programming skills as well as background in Machine Learning, any musical background or skills would be useful, but are not mandatory.

Additional information: If shortlisted you are required to attend an interview sometime in October (a suitable date will be arranged with shortlisted candidates).

Enabling the Drawing Robots to See

Project summary: The aim of this project is to enable the drawing robots – mobile robots that produce line drawings — to do collaborative drawing by developing a vision mechanism that allows them to “see”  and respond to what a co-creative human or robot partner is drawing. This research project involves the design and development of software that will run on the robots. 

Prerequisites: Third-year or honours computer science student with programming skills as well as background in Machine Learning. An interest in creativity and drawing would be helpful.

Additional information: If shortlisted you are required to attend an interview sometime in October (a suitable date will be arranged with shortlisted candidates).
