  Accountable autonomy of software agents
  Prof W Vasconcelos, Dr N Oren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many tasks once performed by humans are now carried out by autonomous artificial intelligence systems. An important aspect of such systems is their accountability, that is, how their decisions and behaviours can be recorded, scrutinised and, if necessary, revised.
  Complex Norm Synthesis via Deep Learning
  Dr N Oren, Prof W Vasconcelos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how agents operating as part of a group should learn behaviours that benefit the group as a whole. These behaviours are commonly referred to as norms, and describe obligations, permissions and prohibitions on actions in specific contexts.
  Early Stage Researcher in Explaining Bayesian Reasoning
  Prof E Reiter
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

People have a hard time understanding probabilistic and Bayesian reasoning, because we don’t naturally think in probabilistic terms.
  Explainable Autonomous AI Systems
  Dr N Oren, Prof W Vasconcelos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how the decisions made by an AI system operating as part of a group can be explained.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  Topological methods for image recognition
  Prof B Martin, Prof R Levi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop mathematical algorithms for manipulating and classifying medical images.
  Fast, reliable and secure wireless IoT chaos-based communication
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project tackles scientific issues aimed at creating and laying the mathematical foundations of an innovative Wireless IoT Communication System…
  The mathematics behind the smartness of neural networks
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intelligence is one of the pillars that allows animals to master their environment. Scientific approaches recently proposed have been capable of simulating networked systems that reproduce similar emergent manifestations of behavior as those observed in the brain.
  Automated Big data analysis
  Dr A Starkey, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will focus on the task of automating data analysis tasks, particularly for numerical data but the techniques developed could be applied to other domains such as textual data analysis.
  Autonomous learning with Artificial Intelligence
  Dr A Starkey, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to learn the sensorimotor maps of unknown environments without supervision is a vital capability of any autonomous agent, be it biological or artificial.
  Durability analysis in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
  Dr M Aleyaasin, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project , the heavy duty hybrid electric vehicles is considered for the investigation. The propulsion in these trucks is based on parallel operation of a bank of lithium batteries and series of hydrogen fuel cells.
  Internet Transport Methods for 5G mobile networks
  Dr R Secchi, Prof G Fairhurst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Electronics Research Group (ERG) operates as a part of the School of Engineering at the University of Aberdeen and has a recognised research capability in designing new protocols, testing and the evaluation of network performance, especially over challenging Internet paths.
  Development of novel analysis method for dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI in patients with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy
  Dr J He, Dr T Ahearn, Prof D Lurie
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The survival rate of breast cancer, a major and expanding societal challenge, has improved significantly in the past decades, following the introduction of wide range of cancer drugs.
  Markerless motion capture for healthcare applications
  Dr D Blana, Dr N Oren
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many disorders and injuries result in abnormal movement that impairs function and affects quality of life.
  Mathematical and statistical evaluation of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) data for the management of cancer
  Dr M Nath, Prof A Welch, Dr F McKiddie
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining advanced imaging technologies with patient-level characteristics, it is now feasible to diagnose, monitor and evaluate the prognosis of cancer patients and adopt appropriate treatment strategies tailored to individual patient leading to the concept of personalised medicine.
