PhD Studentship: Statistical Machine Learning for Medical Imaging

University of Surrey - Computer Science

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Guildford
Funding for: UK Students
Funding amount: From £19,062 Enhanced UKRI stipend, p.a. (2022/23 rate)
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 25th July 2022
Closes: 25th November 2022
Reference: PGR-2122-202

Project Title: Statistical Machine Learning for Medical Imaging

This project aims to develop novel uncertainty methodologies and a software toolkit with uncertainty awareness for radiograph-based disease detection. The proposed models are expected to differentiate themselves with the uncertainty quantification algorithms for the known uncertainty sources, as well as from unknown sources. This will be achieved through three concrete and actionable research tasks in the duration of the studentship:

  1. data uncertainty integration for medical imaging;
  2. model uncertainty quantification; and
  3. clinician-in-the-loop AI (incorporating knowledge into the AI).

Thus, in identified high uncertainty cases, human validation, intervention, and more extensive tests can be carried out to avoid potential error. The resulted open-source software toolkit will be validated through an AI-assisted radiograph-based dental disease detection application and is transferable across a wide range of diagnostic radiology applications.

The application is rolling-based with no fixed submission deadline until the position is filled. Early applications are strongly encouraged for early PhD start. The PhD student will be based at the Nature Inspired Computing and Engineering (NICE) research group in the Department of Compute Science at the University of Surrey. The student will also benefit from ample computing and research resources from Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) and the Surrey Institute for People-Centred AI.

Supervisors: Dr Yunpeng Li, Dr Samaneh Kouchaki.

Entry requirements

Open to UK students starting in January 2023. Later start dates are possible until July 2023.
