About the Project

Training deep neural networks to learn a very accurate mapping from inputs (such as image data, sensor data, text) to outputs (e.g. labels also known as classes) requires large amounts of labelled data. Even when these models are trained, they have limited ability to generalise to conditions which are different to the ones used for training the model.

Projects under this topic concern the development of Continual/Lifelong learning algorithms which can learn continuously and adaptively, to autonomously and incrementally develop complex skills and knowledge. Projects include the development of methods for recognising new behaviours in various environments such as smart environments (e.g. cities, homes, healthcare settings), and continuous object recognition.

Start date: January 2020, April 2020, July 2020, October 2020, January 2021.
Entry requirements:
Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science with a strong interest in Artificial intelligence and Data Science. Applicants must be competent in programming and applied mathematics, and should have a strong ability to write computer programs preferably in the Python programming language. An MSc degree in Artificial intelligence and/or data science is highly desirable.
How to apply:
All applications are made online, please select the school/department name under the programme name section and include the quote reference number.
