The University of Coimbra, in Portugal, through Instituto Pedro Nunes, is
looking for a researcher to work on the development of tools for automating
the production of scripts for short videos.
The work will be developed in the Department of Informatics Engineering,
under the supervision of Hugo Gonçalo Oliveira (
https://eden.dei.uc.pt/~hroliv/), and will have in mind its integration in
the Glymt platform (https://glymt.com/).
Currently, the clients of Glymt have to write natural language requests for
videos they want to be produced (e.g. about an event to be promoted or a
product to be advertised), which can be a time-consuming task.
This work aims to develop computational tools for aiding the clients in the
production of this kind of requests.
It is an opportunity to work on a project that lies in the intersection of
academic research and industry, with a result to be intregrated in a real
product. It should thus be seen by the candidate either as opening the
doors of a potential PhD, or, instead, of a potential future career at
University of Coimbra
The candidate should hold a MSc in Computer Science or equivalent.
Background on Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing,
Computational Creativity, or Digital Literature are a plus.
