PhD position in mathematics for AI

The expansion of Artificial Intelligence (AI), in the broad sense, is one of the most exciting developments of the 21st century. This progress opens up many possibilities but also poses grand challenges. The center “Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program” (WASP) is launching a program to develop the mathematical side of this area, see http://wasp-sweden.org/ai-math/. The aim is to promote the competence of Sweden as a nation within the area of AI. We are taking part in this program through several research projects. We have recently recruited three PhD students and we now seek one more PhD student with a strong background in mathematics or mathematical statistics for the project “Deepest learning using stochastic partial differential equations”
supervised by associate professor Annika Lang.
Additionally, there are two related WASP PhD projects at Chalmers: one at the Department of Computer Science and another at the Department of Electrical Engineering. This means that Chalmers will have a strong environment for opening up this exciting new area of mathematics.

Application deadline: October 30, 2018
Starting date: January 1, 2019
