One fully funded PhD position to work with Dr Tiejun Ma in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, on a project titled “Performance Optimization of Distributed Trust System Infrastructure”.
The aims of the project are to: (i)Adopting the state-of-the-art stochastic optimisation techniques to look at the trade-off among the network overhead and performance requirements of Consensus algorithms underline the distributed systems;(ii) adopt multiple objectives stochastic optimisation with maximise the speed of transactions and minimising the cost of achieving transactions using byzantine fault tolerance or similar techniques. The Award holder will be located in the Centre for Intelligent Systems and their Applications, School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and collaborate with world leading industry firms.
