PhD studentship on Scientific Trend Prediction. Project details (Deadline May 1, 2024)

Project description: Working closely with the project partner QinetiQ, this project will combine state-of-the-art machine learning methods, natural language models and image recognition to develop a human-in-the-loop system for systematic reviews and predictive analytics. We envisage that the system will be able to collate and analyse a significant amount of research publications. Furthermore, we expect the system to quantify and extrapolate research trends that may have significant impacts on technology development. (How to apply)
