Post-Doctoral Position Artificial Intelligence Applied to Crowd Monitoring

Wireless Communications group Ecole polytechnique de Bruxelles

Job description

We are seeking an outstanding and highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to join a research program aiming at developing an intelligent crowd monitoring system for large public events. The system will be able:

  1. To provide crowd density and directional fluxes maps in real-time.
  2. To anticipate and mitigate abnormal crowd behaviors, especially for safety issues, by learning crowd dynamics and proposing mitigation actions.

To reach these two objectives, dedicated crowd density sensors will be designed. In parallel, innovative crowd density forecasting algorithms will be developed, by using advanced Artificial Intelligence strategies.

The researcher will work in close collaboration with another post-doc specialized in electrical engineering, and with the support of one main mobile operator in Belgium. The system will be tested in real-life during large public events organized in Brussels. A pre-industrial prototype is foreseen by the end of 2019.

Profile

  • An awarded Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence (or PhD with strong experience in AI); An experience in forecasting algorithms is an asset;
  • His/her ability to perform theoretical analysis, with a good publication track record;
  • His/her strong willingness for field implementation;
  • Excellent skills in spoken and written English.

Interested ?

Applicants should submit via e-mail a curriculum vitae, the contact information for two references, and a copy of two to three representative publications from previous research to Professor Ph. De Doncker: pdedonck@ulb.ac.be.

Duration: 2 years full time in the first instance.
Starting date: presumably April 15th

Deadline for the submission of applications: April 15th
