[visionlist] PhD Scholarship in Deep Learning with GAN

Dear All, 

Would be much appreciated if you could please help publish this scholarship opportunity to the mailinglist. 

Many thanks in advance!



PhD Scholarship in Deep Learninghttp://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/AYN907/funded-phd-in-deep-learning/Three-year PhD scholarship is available to UK, EU and overseas students and will cover home tuition fees (£4,179 for 2017/18) plus a maintenance grant equivalent to the full UK Research Council rate (£14,553
for 2017/18). The amount of scholarship is £18,732 for 2017/18. The scholarship for year 2,3 should foresee a similar amount with slightly yearly increase. Tuition
fees at the home/EU rate will be paid by the School of Computing on behalf of the student. Students from overseas will receive the same contribution to their fees (£4,179 in 2017/18) but will need to demonstrate that they can fund the difference between overseas
and home fees (Oversea fee is currently £16,480).

Research Theme: This project aims to explore how deep learning can be used to deal with multiscale multidimensional biomedical signals, and to evaluate the effectiveness of different learning algorithms in recognizing the signal patterns.
It will examine this problem by comparing with traditional algorithms and propose novel deep learning architectures with adversarial network (i.e. GAN) to explore discriminative power in a particular domain of biomedical signals (i.e. EMG, ECG, EEG).Location          : University of Kent at Medway, UK (40-50 mins from London by train)Supervisors     : Dr. Caroline Ling Li, Prof. Philippe De Wilde, Dr. Palaniappan RamaswamyKey words       : Machine learning, Deep learning, Biomedical signal analysis, EMGCriteria Candidates must hold a good Honours degree (First or 2:1) or a Master’s degree at merit or distinction in a relevant subject or equivalent. Applicants whose first language is not English must hold IELTS (or equivalent) at 6.5 with no element
less than 6.0. Strong programming or/and math skill is preferred. Previous research experience leading to publications would be an advantage.How to apply Deadline: Friday 30 June 2017Expected start date: Autumn 2017 (Other scholarship available for starting on September 2018)
