*Open position for Ph.D.
1 position (3 years) starting at the beginning of October 2015; 
expiration date for first level applications: May 10th, 2015*


        Research Area:

  *


              *Machine learning techniques for cognitive dynamic
              systems: application of the Bayesian approach to radio and
              video domains*

    The proposed PhD involves the study of machine learning techniques
    with a Bayesian approach: the goal of the PhD is to develop novel
    learning techniques and apply them to possibly two different domains.
    On one side, bio-inspired learning approaches can be applied to
    cognitive radio networks thus allowing adaptive methods for analysis
    and decision to evolve under specific environmental operating
    conditions. Focus will be on Bayesian methods and game theory
    approach for modelling dynamic strategies for opportunistic spectrum
    access.

    Moreover, a Bayesian approach can be applied for learning from video
    data: signals acquired from both static surveillance cameras and
    egocentric vision sensors can be analysed for characterizing
    behaviours of both single users and complex active entities (e.g.
    crowds).

    Activities will be oriented to address the use of developed methods
    within bio-inspired cognitive artificial systems for physical
    security and telecommunications.

    Possibility will be open during the PhD to join on going funded
    research projects when available within the joint labs ISIP40 has
    with industries (e.g Technoaware, Telecom, ligurian industrial
    district SIIT).
