This fully funded PhD studentship will achieve new insights into animal bio-acoustic signalling and potential industrial applications, using new development and applications of machine learning, including attentional AI.
We welcome applicants with a 1st class or 2:1 BSc (or equivalent) in biology, computer science or any related field. The project will require strong skills in programming (e.g. Python), machine learning and data analysis, including recent machine learning techniques and computer simulation.
This PhD is based at the University of Essex, but the successful candidate will also undertake a fully funded, 1.5 year placement in Japan with Cross Labs, an AI research institute within the company Cross Compass Ltd.
Title: Learning from animal signals: new machine learning applications and development inspired by bioacoustics
