This project is hosted by the STADIUS Center for Dynamical Systems, Signal Processing, and Data Analytics group of the Department of Electrical Engineering (ESAT) at KU Leuven. STADIUS is an academic research center, with a research focus on mathematical engineering, where mathematical tools from numerical linear and multilinear algebra, statistics and optimization are engineered for applications of dynamical systems and control, signal processing, data modeling and analytics.
AI systems often have to cope with an overwhelming amount of input data. Time series often contain long sequences which have a similar behavior and which can be processed as a whole, rather than cutting it in a large amount of fixed-size epochs. In this task, we will automate such segmentation processes as much as possible, with a focus on automatically splitting (multi-modal) time series into segments of variable sizes, within which the statistics are homogeneous across each segment. Such segmentation allows to model or process each segment with a different (more tailored) model, or to treat each segment as a higher-level object, which can be described or embedded as a single feature vector in further processing steps.
The main goal is to design a general-purpose segmentation pipeline and apply it in several use cases, for example in the analysis of electroencephalography (EEG) data for epilepsy.
This project will be funded by the impulse program on Artificial Intelligence (AI) Research, which is an initiative of the Flemish government to position Flanders as an international leader in the field of AI.
The application deadline is in July 2020, but earlier applications are encouraged and will be considered as soon as they are received.
