  • Research Engineer position in Green AI applied to biodiversity Computer vision and fish tracking

    GreenAI UPPA is an engaged team of data scientists and researchers who are concerned with our impact on earth. This position is opened at the university of Pau in a joint R&D project with the Hizkia company (https: // www. in order to leverage deep/machine learning tools to environmental issues.

    Industrial context

    Migratory fishes require different environments for the main phases of their life cycle which are reproduction, production of juveniles, growth and sexual maturation. Damage due to hydraulic turbines or spill ways may be a cause of delays in migration, but also injury or mortality. In this context, Hizia is currently offering fish passes with embedded technologies in order to monitor the biodiversity. Indeed, fish passes help fish to pass the highest obstacle in the river, but also offer opportunities to embed sensors and algorithms.

    The open position is related with the collaboration between Hizkia and GreenAI UPPA. The applicant will design fish counting and classification methods that will be deployed in the existing technologies of Hizkia. This application contains next level challenges : object tracking from frame to frame, denoising images, correct lighting and species labels, and tackle problems of quantization of high resolutions images and videos.

    The fundings come from a specific national plan France Relance and for this reason, the applicants MUST have obtained a French diploma in 2020 or 2021. The successful applicants will join the university of Pau (UPPA) within the GreenAI UPPA team recently created by Sébastien Loustau.
