PhD scholarship in AI+Games (in London) available for UK citizens or residents

Country : UK - United Kingdom

Website : http://www.iggi.org.uk/apply

Description

We offer up to 4 PhD studenships based at Goldsmiths (to cover fees and provide a stipend
(to help cover your living expenses), plus some additional perks (e.g. conference fees))
for research at the crossings of AI and Computer Games and with applications in potentially
all domains (from health, to the arts, to manufacturing and beyond).
Typical duration is four (4) years, and it includes 1 or 2 internships (e.g. in a games studio or an R&D organisation),
and usually starts in September.
NB: Only UK citizens or UK residents for a minimum of 3 years can be financially supported (a restriction
from our funders).
I am keen to collaborate with a smart individual with good skills in programming and other disciplines
who likes maths and AI and games in general.
Current main topics I would be keen to support could involve one or many of :
- AI/Machine learning, e.g. to help in labelling large data sets towards deep learning training
(such as re-purposing games asset creation for automatic driving, of for navigating complex data,
e.g. in the biomedical field or for climate science, or else (do suggest one)).
- AI for agent/virtual (non-playing) characters (or NPCs).
- Gamification of scientific problems, towards crowd sourcing or education;
e.g. the project I co-run: http://bioblox.org/
- AI in games to make virtual characters more human like, e.g. providing them
with artistic behaviors; check the project I co-run with a current IGGI student (artist, programmer, Daniel Berio):

- AI, games (3D simulators) and robotics : be creative ..
check past and current projects I am involved in:
AIkon: www.aikon-gold.com
AutoGraff: http://www.doc.gold.ac.uk/autograff/
... but do suggest other topics eventually (more on me, my research interests : www.folleymarie.com)
