Open position for a PhD student in the area of 3D-model reconstruction and computer vision. This position is for an Early Stage Researcher in the project GoCARB – Type 1 Diabetes Self-Management and Carbohydrate Counting: A Computer Vision based Approach, a Marie Curie Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways grant funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. The aim of GoCARB is the design, development and evaluation of a system which will permit the automatic, near real-time recognition of the different types of foods on a plate and the estimation of their content of carbohydrates. In addition, this information will be used to optimise the calculation of the bolus insulin dose.
