  The dynamics of human attention in the online environment
  Dr M-A Rizoiu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topic. This project will develop and evaluate stochastic models for the spread of information over complex social networks, in which the individual actions -- such as retweets, posts or shares -- are only partially observed.
  Intelligent human-machine interaction for engineering design
  Research Group: Computational Engineering and Design
  Dr D Toal
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr. D.J.J. Toal. Co-supervisor Prof. A.J. Keane. Project description.
  Biologically-Plausible Continual Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Continual learning (aka lifelong learning) refers to a problem on how a learning system learns multiple tasks in succession over the lifespan where later tasks do not degrade the performance of the system learned for the earlier tasks and, ideally, the system can leverage the knowledge learned in previous tasks to facilitate learning the new tasks better.
  Round-trip policy engineering
  Dr J Padget
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most policies are written by humans for humans.
  Digital health technology and patient safety

  Machine Learning and Cognitive Modelling Applied to Video Games
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Video games have been viewed as an ideal test bed for the study of AI. However, most of the academic work in this area focused on traditional board and card games where limited AI techniques have been tested.
  Continuous validation for policy compliance and policy revision
  Dr J Padget
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A policy can capture and express human intentions for the behaviour of (human and software) actors a priori, but without compliance monitoring, it can be difficult to be confident that policy is being followed, or to observe transgressions that may be indicative of unfitness for purpose.
  The Economics of Superstars: Wages in Sport - understanding using primary data the changes over the postwar period in sport for its foremost performers
  Dr J Reade, Dr S Jewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The work of Sherwin Rosen (1981) established a literature on the economics of superstars - an attempt to explain the very high premia top performers in a given field are able to attract.
