Opennings

  • Multiple PhD positions in machine learning with simulation and physics modeling of the world (open)

    We have several PhD openings in machine learning research for exploring methods to combine learning with process-driven modeling and simulations. The interaction and cooperation between a simulator and a machine learning model can be exploited in a number of areas where data are expensive or difficult to obtain, and/or where domain knowledge within the process-driven models can back the inductive biases factored into the machine learning models. In the medical domain, machine learning methods can be combined with neuromechanical simulators to develop models of human locomotion that shall support critical medical decisions related to surgical interventions treating pathological gait patterns. In industrial manufacturing, simulations and physical modeling of realistic or extreme operational conditions can support the learning of rare faulty behaviours in order to trigger early alerts. In chemoinformatics, an external system (e.g. RDKit) can provide relevant constraints for generating valid new molecules with specific required characteristics.

  • PhD position on learning and simulation for human locomotion modelling (closed)

    We have an opening for a PhD position on the development of machine learning methods for the modelling of pathological human locomotion in the framework of a collaborative Sinergia project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. The goal of the project is to develop, through machine learning and neuromechanical simulation, accurate models of human locomotion, together with Stephane Armand (University of Geneva, Kinesiology laboratory) and Auke Ijspeert (Biorobotics laboratory, EPFL, BIOROB). The project will (1) model pathological gaits resulting from motor impairments such as cerebral palsy, and (2) compare and combine neuromechanical simulation and machine learning approaches for gait analysis. It brings together expertise on pathological gait, neuromechanical simulation models, machine learning, coupled with a unique collection of relevant real world data.
