    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Funding for a PhD scholarship (stipend plus fees) is available at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics ( at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway)

The Insight Centre for Data Analytics is an SFI funded Research Centre which brings together researchers from across Ireland to create a critical mass of more than 400 researchers from Ireland’s leading ICT clusters to carry out research on a new generation of data analytics technologies in a number of key application domain areas, such as Health and Human Performance, Smart Communities, Internet of Things, Enterprise and Services and Sustainability and Operations.

The Internet of Multimedia Things has moved from a research vision to concrete manifestations in real-world deployments within smart environments. A key challenge is to process the resulting streams of unstructured data in a low-latency manner. The PhD position will explore fundamental research on reinforcement learning for low-latency event processing models for unstructured data streams. The successful candidate will carry out distributed systems research at the interface of event processing and artificial intelligence.

The PhD project will explore fundamental research on reinforcement learning models and techniques for IoMT Event Processing. The candidate is expected to ground the work in the current state-of-the-art in the middleware, event processing, computer vision, and Internet of Things research and come up with scientifically valid evaluation datasets and frameworks needed for low-latency knowledge-centric video event processing.

Funding Notes

Applicants should have :
• At least 2.1 grade (or equivalent) in an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in computer science or related discipline.
• Expertise in experimental design is desired but not a requirement.
• Non-native English speakers require an IELTS IELTS/TOEFL certificate

The scholarship is valued at approximately €120,000, to include a tax-free stipend of €18,500 per year for four years, full coverage of tuition fees, funds for conference travel, and an equipment allowance.
