CIFRE pre-thesis internship and PhD thesis in geometric modeling
A six months pre-thesis Internship position is opened at Inria Sophia Antipolis in collaboration with the startup Ekinnox. It can continue as a CIFRE Ph.D. thesis.
Topic: Geometric Modeling of Human Walking for Medical Rehabilitation via Data Fitting and Machine Learning.
Abstract. This internship is part of a research project whose aim is to develop an innovative solution for medical diagnostic and monitoring of walking ability disorders. Its main objective is the determination of a parametric continuous model that provides a good representation of walking from 3D camera acquisitions. This model should be simple albeit sufficiently rich to yield a reliable approximation of all possible walking patterns. Furthermore, a fitting algorithm will also be devised in order to identify the best instance of this model for a wide range of data sets. This algorithm will have to exhibit robustness to variable noise and occultations, two defects that are inherent to 3D point acquisitions from depth maps.
