Ocean Energy


PhD in Computer Science: Development of machine learning techniques for the modelling of the sea's surface shape from video observations, with the aim of improving the safety of maritime operations and the power output of wave energy converters at University of Exeter

#artificialintelligence

The safety of critical maritime operations and the power output of wave energy converters can both be improved by measuring and predicting the shape and motion of sea waves. You will join a growing machine learning group at Exeter, working directly with Dr Jacqueline Christmas in collaboration with Prof Michael Belmont. For informal enquiries about the project, please contact Dr Jacqueline Christmas, J.T.Christmas@exeter.ac.uk. You should have strong programming skills, an aptitude for mathematics, and an enthusiasm for research into image processing and machine learning.
