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!
I was surprised to find out that some institutions require PhD students to publish a certain number of papers before they can graduate. This is not my view; my goal as a supervisor is to train students to be good scientists, and rigid publication targets are not appropriate for this goal.
I would like to see more PhD students and postdocs “getting their hands dirty” by collecting real-world data, working with real-world users and experts, and conducting real-world evaluations with users. Its not easy, but engaging with the real world does help scientific and technological progress.
I’m looking for a PhD student to work on explaining Bayesian Reasoning, as part of the NL4XAI project. Should be a great project!
Many students get stressed about their PhD viva (oral exam) even though they are very unlikely to fail. I present some rules and a flowchart to suggest when there is real cause for concern, and when there is not.
