The Research Graph Foundation is a not-for-profit and collaborative venture to connect scholarly records across global research repositories. The Foundation contributes to developing capabilities that transform disconnected and siloed research activities into a connected network of scholarly works.

**Project **\

AI Vision: Using AI and Transformer technology to analyse and tag images

In this project, the interns would use machine learning models and AI Vision (such as GPT vision) to process images and tag them with related information. In addition, the interns would have the opportunity to learn about generative AI for video and images such as Stable Diffusion to create and transform visual content. This is a research project that provides a unique opportunity to learn and experience working with cutting-edge AI technologies.

There are two components to this internship:

(A) Learning, reading and writing about AI vision, and text-to-image and image-to-text models

(B) Using Python code to create AI pipelines for image processing

The successful applicants will have the opportunity to work with AI models running on high-performance computing platforms and explore AI technologies in the context of an AI-driven research project.

The project is managed by the Research Graph Foundation, and it will have support from academia in a number of Australian research institutions.

All generated materials by interns including articles and source code will be publicly accessible under a Creative Commons licence.

**Required technical skills**\

Required: Advanced knowledge of Python, and working knowledge of GPT API, AI vision, and prompt engineering

Preferred: Linux environment experience, Stable Diffusion, Midjourney

**Required professional/other skills**\

Ability to work independently and take initiative while knowing when to ask for help and communicate with others. Having curiosity and diligence are needed for a research project as the ability to collaborate with a small team.

**Delivery Mode**\


**Type of internship**\

Unpaid placement.

**How to apply**\

Applications are invited from students who have already passed the eligibility checks for the Computing Internship courses COMP3820 or COMP4820 or COMP8830. Further information about the Computing Internships can be found on the Computing Internship page.

You can nominate multiple preferred Internship projects and host organisations through the one application form.

The closing date for Expressions of Interest for internship projects is 19th May, 2024. Students who have passed the eligibility checks would have received the application form.
