Project Description

Deep Learning is another name for a set of algorithms that use a neural network as an architecture. Deep learning networks simulate interconnected brain tissue and are solving many important problems. The main area of research will be the interaction between mathematics and neuroscience and applications of deep learning to medical data.
The successful student will learn several new and important areas of IT and Mathematics: data mining, machine learning, and analysis on graphs, big data management, gpu/cuda programming and data sets fusion.
Unusual behaviour detection and deep learning methods can have much wider applications in other areas like target detection, intruder detection, suspicious activities monitoring etc.
He/she also will develop an experience in mathematical programming and software development.
The student will learn how to collaborate and how to communicate results to non-mathematicians, and how to work on interdisciplinary project.
