Meet the Class of 2019: Introducing Borealis AI’s Graduate Fellowship winners

The fellowships were awarded to exceptional students pursuing graduate-level studies in machine learning and artificial intelligence at top universities across Canada.  Each of our winners demonstrated outstanding research capabilities, provided strong references, and outlined a clear, thoughtful research focus for the current academic year.

We were overwhelmed by the exceptional calibre of this year’s candidates and our adjudication committee had no easy task selecting the 10 finalists.  We’re proud to introduce our inaugural group (below) and look forward to meeting everyone in person on March 1 as we host an event in their honour in Montreal.  School: University of Alberta, Amii, PhD candidate Research

Next generation of artificial intelligence talent to be trained at UK universities

Thousands of graduates to become qualified experts in artificial intelligence (AI) as part of a new joint government-industry package to drive up skills in the AI sector, Business Secretary Greg Clark and Digital Secretary Jeremy Wright announced today (21 February 2019).

It is supported by industry funding and up to £110 million government investment, including: The announcement comes as new figures prepared for Tech Nation by reveal the number of venture capital investments into the UK’s rapidly growing AI sector leapt by 17% last year.

As companies throughout the UK increasingly use AI in processes from manufacturing to fashion and construction to medical imaging, upskilling people to develop and maintain the new technology is crucial to its success in boosting productivity.

The schemes, aimed at people of different stages in higher education and available to researchers at a variety of levels, helps to build advanced AI skills at all levels, a key commitment contained within the AI Sector Deal.

They provide a great impetus to developing AI skills and talent and I strongly encourage industry, universities and those of you who aspire to be part of putting the UK at the forefront of the AI and data revolution to get involved in these 3 initiatives.

The Industrial Strategy sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, ensuring that the UK takes advantage of major global changes, improving people’s lives and the country’s productivity.

In the industry-funded Masters scheme, the 11 companies listed here have committed their early support to collectively fund up to 50 of these additional places and work-based placements.

Two PhD Research Fellows - Signal Processing and Artificial Intelligence for wireless networks

WISENET Lab is in rapid expansion, having at present seven PhD students and three postdoctoral researchers working on multiple cutting-edge research projects, such as FRIPRO TOPPFORSK, SFI, PETROMAKS, IKTPLUSS and INFRASTRUCTURE projects.

The open PhD positions are offered in the area of self-organized wireless networks enabled by direct device-to-device (D2D) simultaneous links employing novel dynamic spectrum access (DSA) features, aiming at progressing substantially over the state-of-the-art both in terms of theoretical aspects (fundamental performance analysis) and algorithm designs.

The ever-increasing demand for ultra-high data rates and energy efficiency in radio access networks (RAN) together with the need for enabling different types of user-driven applications poses enormous challenges.

To this end, D2D communication exploits the spatial proximity of devices, which enables direct exchanges of data and control information, i.e., bypassing the base station.

As a consequence, higher spectrum reuse can be achieved by enabling multiple D2D communication links while meeting the communication needs for different types of services or applications involving nearby users.

In WISECART, the main goal is to scale up D2D communication to enable a self-organized networking among multiple and heterogeneous devices for purposes such as sharing contents of common interest, increasing connectivity, or intelligently performing certain cooperative tasks.

To be regarded as an eligible applicant, the candidate must have: Moreover, it would be considered an advantage to have additional knowledge and experience in: Candidates should also have: The previous participation in national and European projects related to the areas of this position, will be also considered as a plus, as well as the publication of scientific papers on international conferences related to these topics.

The positions are remunerated according to the State salary scale, salary plan 17.515, code 1017, NOK 449 400 gross per year.

Successful candidates will be asked, normally during the interview, to ensure that the issuing university submits documents in a sealed envelope directly to UiA or provide access to their documents online, which allows UiA to verify the authenticity of these electronic documents via a secure website hosted at the issuing university (contact person at UiA will be provided later for certain candidates).

Closing date: 22.04.19 For further information please contact: In accordance with §25(2) of the Freedom of Information Act, applicants may request that they are not identified in the open list of applicants.
