The Department of Intelligent Systems is part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) at Delft University of Technology. The faculty offers an internationally competitive interdisciplinary setting for its 500 employees, 350 PhD students and 1700 undergraduates. Together they work on a broad range of technical innovations in the fields of sustainable energy, quantum engineering, microelectronics, intelligent systems, software technology, and applied mathematics.

The Pattern Recognition and BioInformatics Group is one of five groups in the department, consisting of seven faculty members and over 20 post-doc and PhD students. Within this group, research is carried out in three core subjects: pattern recognition, computer vision, and bioinformatics. One of the main focuses of the group is on developing tools and theories, and gaining knowledge and understanding applicable to a broad range of general problems, but typically involving sensory data, e.g. time signals, images, video streams, or other physical measurement data. Automatic long term understanding of video is relevant for medical, surveillance, sport applications. Most current work in deep learning focuses on short video snippets. This project is about long-term dependencies in video. The PhD position is shared with TU-Delft and TNO.
