About the Project
Deep learning is receiving a lot of attention due to its ability to achieve unprecedented levels of performance in terms of accuracy and speed, to the point where deep learning algorithms can outperform humans at decision making, and tasks such as classifying images, and real-time detection.
The emphasis of this project is the design and development of artificial intelligence algorithms which can provide reasoning behind predictions and decisions. Applications where reasoning is particularly needed include biomedical and healthcare predictive modelling applications.
Feature selection using Deep Learning has not been well studied, despite its importance which facilitates understanding of data and reasoning with machine learning outputs.
Projects under this topic may also concern the development of algorithms which are capable of removing irrelevant features from large uni-modal and multi-modal datasets with a view on providing reasoning behind predictions.
If you are interested please get in touch with Dr Cosma ([Email Address Removed]) to discuss the topic further.
