Machine learning and artificial intelligence have been shown by our research team and the wider research community to be very powerful in predicting complex machine behaviour and consequently diagnose their health. This information is encapsulated in a model and leads to more sustainable operation only if it is trusted.
Trust in sophisticated models can come from their interpretability, consistency with physical models and ability to explain their output. They must be built upon data rich in information and of known provenance. This project addresses the challenges in producing trusted predictions using all knowledge sources (from different domains) to better understand asset behaviour and health, while accommodating the realities of imperfect training data sets.
Working on real Industrial problems (with our sponsor Rolls-Royce) you will develop cutting edge skills as a data scientist and engineer to build models of complex data sets.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and intellectually curious UK or EU national to work on this project who is motivated by seeing realisation of their research in real engineering applications.
