PhD Position in Computational Science and Engineering at Umeå University.
The Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Umeå University is opening a PhD position in mathematics focusing on the mathematics of artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence and deep neural networks have had tremendous success on several previously unsolved data analysis problems. The mathematical understanding of how and why deep neural networks work is however very limited. This project focuses on the development of mathematical methods and tools for investigation and future development of deep neural networks. In particular we will investigate the imposition of scale separation in deep neural networks for improved robustness and explainability. The research project involves mathematical and algorithmic development as well as practical application and testing using state of the art software. The project is part of the AI/Math track of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems, and Software Program (WASP) and the PhD student will be enrolled in the WASP graduate school, see https://wasp-sweden.org/graduate-school/ for more information.
This call is part of a joint call for doctoral students in Math/AI. It is done in several steps, where finding doctoral students is the second step. The first step, the project call, can be found here: https://wasp-sweden.org/positions/call-for-phd-projects-in-mathematics-for-ai/
