· Unbalanced data problem, where one class has substantially larger number of
· Incremental learning of additional information that later becomes available to a
· Data fusion
· Biological signal processing, early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease from EEG
· Brain machine interface (we do have a dedicated EEG / ERP system).
All projects require exceptional problem solving, analytical thinking and programming skills (particularly in C/C++ and Matlab). Background in pattern recognition, in particular machine learning algorithms, such as artificial neural networks are highly desired for RA applicants.
For all applicants, regardless of native language, adequate oral and written communication skills commensurate with the requirements of graduate work is expected.
