  Continuous validation for policy compliance and policy revision
  Dr J Padget
Application Deadline: 10 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.
  Detecting pain in human expressions
  Dr T S Fincham Haines, Prof E Keogh, Prof C Eccleston
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pain signals threat, and motivates people to engage in protective behaviours. Pain also has a wider social function, in that it elicits helping responses from others.
  Ecological rationality of choices between gambles
  Dr O Şimşek
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What is optimal choice under uncertainty? This is a fundamental question in artificial intelligence, as well as in economics and in psychology.
  General probability distributions for structured machine learning
  Dr T S Fincham Haines
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervised machine learning models, such as artificial neural networks, are unstructured. They can be trained from data, but there is no possibility to include any additional knowledge, e.g.
  High Quality Facial Synthesis for Digital Humans: Crossing the Uncanny Valley
  Prof D Cosker
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Uncanny Valley [Mori] is a term used to describe the challenge of creating human like avatars. Originally applied to robotics, it is a term now commonly applied to computer generated characters.
  Meta-policy and co-policy analysis
  Dr J Padget
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A policy may be conceived in isolation but is necessarily deployed in a context governed by other policies. Some of these other policies may operate at the same level on the same actors – co-policies – and some at higher levels – meta-policies – constraining what other policies may forbid, permit or oblige.
  Optimization for large scale machine learning
  Dr M Golbabaee, Dr C Poon
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, there has been substantial interest in the use of nonconvex and overparameterized schemes for dealing with problems arising in machine learning and data processing.
  Policy driven data science: using access policies and metadata to refine query workflows
  Dr J Padget
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020
