I’m looking for a PhD student to work on using AI and NLG to help cancer patients who are managing their condition at home. The student will be jointly supervised by people at Aberdeen’s Medical School. I think this is a very exciting PhD, and a chance to work on ideas that could make a real difference to people’s lives!
Why would anyone use a Bayesian model instead of a neural model in clinical decision support? Perhaps because the Bayesian model is much easier to justify and adapt to a changing world. Explaining Bayesian models is also a really interesting research challenge, and one of my colleagues has funding for a PhD student in this area.
I would like neural NLG researchers to focus on more challenging datasets, and make some suggestions.
I am very happy to be involved in a new project, PhilHumans, which is exploring how AI can help users interact with personal health apps.
Evaluation in NLP/NLG has a long way to go before it reaches the standards of hypothesis testing in clinical medicine
