PhD Candidate within Artificial Intelligence for Anomaly Detection

PhD Candidate within Artificial Intelligence for Anomaly Detection

We have a vacancy for a PhD Candidate within Artificial Intelligence for Anomaly Detection at the Department of Computer Science at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. 

Wireless embedded sensor nodes can perform increasingly complex inference tasks directly on the device. This makes such devices suitable for instrumenting a large number of machines, equipment or other items with the goal to detect anomalies in their operation. The problem remains to learn what constitutes anomalies that should be reported and distinguish them from normal changes in operation or variations between devices. Together with partners in the NorwAI SFI, the candidate will work on methods and prototypes to detect and classify anomalies, study transfer learning between devices, and explore how expert knowledge can be considered in the specific setting of distributed and streaming sensor data. 

Application deadline: 28th February 2023

At the Department of Computer Science, we have a vacancy for a PhD candidate in Natural Language Processing for personalized content summarization. This PhD project is a part of the PERSEUS doctoral programme, in collboration with the SFI NorwAI.

Content summarization uses machine learning to extract the main ideas of individual texts or collections of text. It may also be used to explain recommendations and provide explanatory features in artificial intelligence in general. Central to the technique is the use of machine learning and language models to interpret text and contextualize content with respect to users or tasks at hand.  Summarization is often combined with other NLP techniques to provide personalized summaries or build conversational systems that make use of external sources. The PhD student will develop new summarization techniques that are incorporated into generative conversational systems and personalized with respect to users and contexts. The research will address both English and Scandinavian languages. The expected results include industrial prototypes in collaboration with industry partners as well as high-quality publications in top NLP venues.

Application deadline: 14th February 2022

At the Department of Computer Science, we have a vacancy for a PhD candidate in AI for Databases. This PhD project is a part of the PERSEUS doctoral programme, in collboration with the SFI NorwAI.

The aim of this PhD position is to work with research topics at the interface between machine learning and databases, and develop techniques that use AI to improve efficiency of database algorithms or database systems. Examples of topics in this direction from recent years include learned indexes, machine learning for query optimization, data cleaning, and algorithm selection. The PhD student will work with challenges related to these or other emerging topics within AI for databases, in cooperation with industry partners in the NorwAI research center. The research outcome is expected to produce high-quality publications in top database/data mining venues.

At the Department of Computer Science, we have a vacancy for a PhD candidate in Algorithms for Large-Scale Processing of Dynamic Graphs. This PhD project is a part of the PERSEUS doctoral programme, in collboration with the SFI NorwAI.

For many important applications, data is presented as graphs, with dynamic relationships between nodes. Examples include graphs representing the power grid, financial transaction relationships, social networks, and transportation networks. The nodes in the graphs can also have attached dynamic data, for example time series, adding further challenges. The PhD student will develop techniques (algorithms and frameworks) for efficient processing of dynamic graphs, in cooperation with industry partners in the NorwAI research center. The research outcome is expected to produce high-quality publications in top database/algorithms/data mining venues.
