PhD Scholarship at UQ with the Queensland Department of Education
This project will develop a prototype system to showcase the scalability, reliability, and usability of an AI-assisted dataset builder for effective and efficient discovery and curation of multi-source and multi-modal educational data. Working in close collaboration with domain experts and end users from the Queensland Department of Education, the project team will review and investigate best practices for constructing on-demand data sets and the concept of “data as a service”. The project will also develop new methods for AI-assisted on-demand dataset builder and will evaluate with a human-centred lens. The research will result in validated methods and a prototype implementation of the system, road-tested with end users.
The advisory team for this project is Associate Professor Hassan Khosravi (Principal Advisor), Associate Professor Wojtek Tomaszewski, Professor Shazia Sadiq (Associate Advisors), and Dr Angela Ferguson (Queensland Department of Education).
For this position, CIRES is seeking a candidate with a good background in data science, data analytics, or machine learning; and proficiency in python programming language and machine learning software packages such as Pytorch.
