The PhD topic will be to explore the use of qualitative spatial representations within the overall context of the project, drawing on ideas from computer vision, machine learning, knowledge representation and automated reasoning.
The successful candidate will thus gain in-depth expertise spanning all four areas – a conjunction that we believe has excellent potential for the future development of cognitive vision systems.
The successful candidate will be jointly based in our computer vision and knowledge representation research groups working with Profs Tony Cohn and David Hogg.
The studentship is open to citizens of any country and will pay a stipend of approximately £12,300 p.a. plus fees.
Non-EU applicants will be required to make-up the difference between UK/EU and non-EU fee levels (see the website below).
