Post-doctoral position at University of Washington, Seattle

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of
Washington, Seattle is offering a one year postdoctoral research
position in the areas of machine learning, probabilistic reasoning,
and time series learning with application to activity recognition. The
starting date could be as early as December 1st, 2006.

This position is funded by a DARPA program in which we develop
techniques for automatically generating high-level summaries of human
activities based on data collected by wearable sensors. There are a
variety of exciting research opportunities in this context, including
unsupervised discovery of activities, learning to extract high-level
information from various types of sensors, adaptation and transfer
learning on sequences, multi-modal information fusion, and efficient
reasoning about unknown numbers of objects.
