IPTC-Amazon Collaboration



IPTC and Amazon have launched a joint training initiative for master students in applications of machine and deep learning, specifically in technologies to extract and combine self-supervised representations for multimedia processing. These technologies have a great potential in many areas such as content generation (audio, image, video, or sign language representation), classification, labelling or search.

For 2022-2023, the training plan is:

1.- Initiative presentation & recruiting. The initiative, research topic and recruiting procedure will be introduced to the students enrolled in UPM ETSIT Master courses.

2.- Study & training. Five selected students will join the initiative and, for some months, will start to gain knowledge and develop their skills in the area or work.

3.- Applications development. In parallel with the study & training stage, students will initiate the development of several applications, such as:

  • Sign language motion generation from high level sign characteristics
  • Speaker diarization with multimodal inputs
  • Pose and spatial movement as input for dynamic content search & generation
  • Entangling AI-audio synthesis models and multimodal representations
  • Zero-shot sonorizing of video sequences

These applications might change depending on the state-of-the-art evolution and the availability of the necessary resources.

Students will be supervised along all the process by both IPTC professors and AMAZON researchers.
