University of Exeter – Computer Science Qualification type: PhD Location: Exeter Funding for: UK Students, EU Students Funding amount: Not specified Hours: Full Time Primary supervisor:  Professor Richard Everson Secondary supervisors: Dr Jonathan Fieldsend and Dr Gavin Tabor Funding 3.5-year studentship: Tuition fees UK/EU and an annual maintenance allowance at current research council rates We are inviting applications for a College of Engineering, Mathematical and Physical Sciences funded PhD studentship in Machine Learning and Optimisation.  Evolutionary algorithms (EAs) use processes inspired by biological evolution to solve optimisation problems. However, they require many evaluations of the function being optimised. In recent years EAs have been combined with machine learning algorithms to automatically learn approximations to the expensive function. These surrogates that emulate the expensive problem are relatively cheap to evaluate and can be…
