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 and probabilistic reasoning
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, adaptation and transfer
learning, multi-modal information fusion, and efficient reasoning
about unknown numbers of objects.
