We are a Spin-off from the Automatic Control Laboratory of ETH Zurich and are developing automation robots and software for professional event video productions. We target to reach Level 5 automation by 2023 which is analogous to developing software for self-driving cars in our industry. With our technology, multi-camera robot setups will collaborate to segment and understand unexplored scenes and then execute all operational tasks of traditional camera crews autonomously, leaving only creative storytelling to human operators. We estimate that we can reduce the average cost of a production by 40% through our technology, making professional video accessible to entirely new segments.

Seervision Zürich, ZH, Switzerland
Full time
Seervision is on a mission to create the world's first crew of intelligent cameraman robots. Creative directors will be able to produce video footage from any live event in education, business, entertainment and sports without being limited by the production budget.   There are plenty of technological challenges in making a vision intelligent cameraman robot. Our current R&D focus is centred around deep learning, predictive robotic motion control, traditional computer vision and machine learning.   We are getting our hands on huge amounts of data while producing video. Efficient ways to parse the data and build a database suitable for training detection and behavioural analytics algorithms will be a fundamental part of future development.   Responsabilities   Develop mechanisms to automatically store metadata out of the live footage and the camera operation from every Seervision robot camera (labelling in machine learning) Format footage and metadata for use in (un)supervised machine learning tasks Develop software bridges between footage metadata and commercial video processing software Requirements   2+ years experience in machine learning, preferably with neural networks Advanced knowledge of video processing software (e.g. Adobe Premiere).
