Deep learning has dramatically pushed the performance of many intelligent systems, but many important questions remain open for research. How can we make sense of the high capacity of deep networks? How should one interpret its decision making process? How can we transfer knowledge from an information-rich application to tasks where data is scarce? What are the limits of its application in other fields?
The role of the doctoral student will be to develop theoretical advances regarding these research questions and focus on applying them to problems in computer vision and/or biomedical image analysis. Possible topics of interest include: knowledge transfer, universial representation and learning, understanding deep networks, explainability, and uncertainty estimation. Should the student be willing and sufficiently experienced, they will have some freedom to steer the direction of research.
Application Instructions: Eligibility
