Fixed terms for 6 Months At the Diabetes Center Berne, our mission is to improve diagnosis and treatment for people living with diabetes by addressing unmet needs.

We're looking for a new team member for our ambitious DeepVision project, which is based on a tight collaboration with the Inselspital Bern : the goal is a mobile app which allows the patient to snap a picture of their meal and using modern Computer Vision algorithms, recognizes the foodstuffs on the plate, estimates the quantity of them and thereby returns a macronutrient estimation.

The challenge

You support our team to create a Computer Vision-based approach to infer the quantity of certain foods on a plate after they have been recognized by our system.

Most likely, this food quantity will be determined using a 3D volumetric estimation of the food using multi-view images of the meal or the integrated depth sensor in modern smartphones like the iPhone X.

Either way, you will get to be creative on this one and are at the liberty of coming up with your own solution, while at the same time having the option of full availability and guidance of our Machine Learning scientists.

Your profile

  • Masterstudent in Computer Science / Electrical Engineering or other similar engineering science
  • Familiar with Python
  • Experienced with Machine Learning frameworks (Tensorflow / Pytorch)
  • Interested in Computer Vision
  • Capable of reading scientific articles
  • Motivated to participate in current research
  • Ability to bring in own ideas and work independently
  • The package

    A diverse, demanding job in a dynamic, interdisciplinary team. Cooperation within different areas, team spirit and fascination for innovation are practiced consciously in our company.

    We are looking forward to your application!
