This ambitious project will use innovative data science related to machine learning and privacy algorithms, while integrating enabling technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G wireless technology to realize the future hearing aids. This project is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)’s ‘Transformative Healthcare Technologies for 2050’ scheme, which supports research into ‘visionary’ technologies with the potential to impact and transform healthcare by the year 2050.
These projects demand that the research student already possesses exceptional knowledge in advanced signal processing and communication together with very high mathematical ability and programming skills. In particular the PhD student needs to have prior knowledge in applied mathematics, multivariate statistical analysis, information theory and should be familiar with various advance wireless communication techniques.
Minimum entry qualification - At least 2.1 first degree and MSc in Engineering or Computer Science or Physics or Mathematics. Further information on English language requirements for EU/Overseas applicants.
Tuition fees + stipend may be available for UK students (TBC).
Applications are also welcomed from those who have already secured funding through scholarship or similar.
