Project description:
With the rapid development of 5G and the high flexibility of accommodating diversified applications with different requirements, network and service robustness becomes increasingly important. Anomaly detection and prediction plays key roles in ensuring its robustness and is a hot research topic. Existing anomaly detection and prediction methods highly rely on threshold setting for good detection performance under specific scenarios, making the solutions not effectively applicable to 5G mobile networks with time-varying network and service requirements.

This EPSRC funded PhD studentship project aims to research on learning-based methods that could achieve self-improvement on the accuracy of anomaly detection and prediction, and further fosters cutting-edge research and development of 5G mobile networks. Therefore, the student will be using up-to-date machine learning technologies such as Recurrent Neural Network and Reinforcement Learning are the primary methodologies to solve the problem and achieve the aims of this project. Candidates who have background on or who are interested in machine learning, data mining, artificial intelligence, and 5G networks are suitable for this research.

Funding Notes

For successful eligible applicants the studentship comprises:

An index-linked stipend for up to 3.5 years full time (currently £14,777 per annum for 2018/19), pro-rata for part-time students.
Payment of University tuition fees (UK/EU)
Research Training Support Grant (RTSG) of £5,000 over 3.5 years, or pro-rata for part-time students
