Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute – Horizon Centre for Doctoral Training in My Life in Data
PhD Studentship in partnership with the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL).
Our digital identities will define the interfaces to the future services that we will use for entertainment, wellbeing, government, transport, energy, retail and finance. They will be constructed from our location history, our personal data, and digital records that capture who, and where, we are and the histories of our digital, and increasingly our physical and social, interactions.
The Horizon Centre for Doctoral Training in My Life in Data will therefore train a community of PhD students with the transdisciplinary skills to address the challenge of digital identity and personal data for the 21st century.
We are recruiting two PhD students to carry out research in partnership with the DSTL with a focus on Deceiving the Machine. The general idea is to explore and analyse ways to fool machine-learning algorithms.
Closing date 23rd February 2018
