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