Irisity is now looking for an engaged Master student in the field of Computer Vision or Machine Learning who is interested in the following Master thesis project:
Reducing annotation efforts using transformer-based models on video data
The recently published segment-anything model (SAM)  suggests that it is possible to significantly reduce the amount of manual work required for producing accurate segmentation masks by utilizing only light human supervision.
The current SAM model operates on single frames only. It seems reasonable that the SAM (or a similar) model could have improved performance when also accounting for preceding and successive frames in a video. As Irisity has access to a large-scale dataset of annotated videos, extending an SAM-like model to utilize such data is of high interest.
The goal of this master thesis is to investigate and compare several ways of extending the SAM model to video data. Depending on interests this could be done either with the goal of further reducing human annotator input over the baseline SAM, or to improve fully unsupervised generalization.
Irisity has access to a large-scale database of annotated video data that could be used for evaluation and training, as well as computational resources for running experiments.
