Project Description:

Machine Learning for 6G Communications Networks: Future 6G wireless networks need to address the challenge of fast and dynamic resource allocation to satisfy the demand of massive connections, ultra-low latency and ultra-high high reliability and capacity in mobile communications networks and Internet-of-Things networks. However, existing resource allocation algorithms are too complex and slow, and do not fit for purpose.

This project will develop a purpose-built deep learning architecture and new algorithms for 1) real-time optimal resource allocation with a guarantee on individual and overall system performance; 2) tackling uncertainties in the radio environment including channel variation, dynamic spectrum sharing, network congestion, user mobility and activities; 3) proactive resource optimization by exploiting the context information and predicting the future network environment. Advanced techniques such as graph neural networks, meta-learning, neuromorphic computing and quantum machine learning will be investigated. The developed new algorithms will enable the 6G networks to have the required cognition and intelligence to rapidly adapt to the dynamic environment and user demand. Through working on this project and joining our renowned Connected Systems Group, you will have the opportunity to work with world-leading experts in signal processing and communications and contribute to the innovation of future wireless networks.

Scholarship:

The award will cover the tuition fees, plus a stipend of £16,062 per annum for 3.5 years of full-time study.

Eligibility:

Applicants should have or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honors degree (or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or a related subject. A relevant Master’s degree and/or experience in communications, signal processing and deep learning is welcome.
