Job description

 

Delft University of Technology and KPN, the leading fixed and mobile telecom operator in The Netherlands, have started a collaboration, called NExTWORKx. Goals of this collaboration include excellent academic research into both fundamental properties and implementation of the next generation telecommunication networks. In the first phase of the collaboration, 6 PhD students, daily supervised by experts in both TUDelft and KPN, will focus on themes that are relevant for KPN in order to design and manage the network of the future using promising technologies as Artificial Intelligence (AI), 5G and Blockchain. A weblink to the press release is https://overons.kpn/nl/nieuws/2018/kpn-en-tu-delft-gaan-samenwerken-aan-nieuwe-ict-technologieën

 

 In particular, 2 PhD openings are defined on the following themes:

 

 1. AI-networking: decisions and clustering

 

The ability to accurately discover all hidden relations between items that share similarities is paramount to solving large optimization problems that pertain to artificial intelligence and networking. By embedding our recently developed clustering techniques into reinforcement learning problems, we will optimize several processes within KPN that relate to learning, decision taking, recommendation giving, and prediction making.
Background: probability theory, stochastic processes, network science, decision theory

 

Supervisors: Jaron Sanders and Piet Van Mieghem; Network Architectures and Services (NAS)

2. AI-networking: data and network science

 

Automatic recommendation of operation choices to network/system components (e.g. which content, service, or resource to allocate) when the system is subject to heterogeneous and dynamic user demand.

 

Background: network science, data science (recommender systems, machine learning, time series analysis), complex systems

 

Supervisors: Huijuan Wang and Alan Hanjalic; Multimedia Computing Group
