Student Assistant / Intern / Thesis Student - Recovering Geometry from Images using Deep Learning

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft ( currently operates 76 institutes and research institutions throughout Germany and is the world’s leading applied research organization. Around 30 000 employees work with an annual research budget of 2.9 billion euros. 

Recovering geometry information from multiple photos of an object is still a challenging task. Recently, many deep learning based approaches have been published, showing a huge potential of this technology for future VR, AR and 3D compositing applications.


To advance our research in this domain, we are looking for you to help us in evaluating the most promising approaches for geometry reconstruction from multiple images using deep learning.
