This project will explore different aspects of intellectual property violations in generative machine learning . There is sufficient research work in this project for at least two students. However, individual sub-topics are rather independent and don't necessarily require group work. Topics can be summarised as follows:
  • First item
  • Second item

This project will apply feature selection techniques for identifying features that can effectively predict the Logistics Performance Index (LPI), building upon our previously published work [1].

This project aims to analyse the comments of Twitter  on non-communicable diseases.  Students are expected to carry out Aspects Detection to identify the specific aspects discussed in the tweets e.g., causes, transmission and symptoms. Subsequently,  students are expected to conduct sentiment analysis utilizing tools like TextBlob or VADER, while also taking into account the importance of considering emojis to enhance classification accuracy.

The increasing integration of Large Language Models (LLMs) into various sectors has recently brought to light the pressing need to align these models with human preferences and implement safeguards against the generation of inappropriate content. This challenge stems from both ethical considerations and practical demands for responsible AI usage. Ethically, there is a growing recognition that the outputs of LLMs must align with laws, societal values, and norms.

SCIPPlan is a mathematical optimisation based automated planner for domains with i) mixed (i.e., real and/or discrete valued) state and action spaces, ii) nonlinear state transitions that are functions of time, and iii) general reward functions. SCIPPlan iteratively i) finds violated constraints (i.e., zero-crossings) by simulating the state transitions, and ii) adds the violated constraints back to its underlying optimization model, until a valid plan is found. The purpose of this project is to improve the performance of SCIPPlan.

An automatically generated blurred photo of a landscape by Dalle-2.

To make artwork more accessible to people who are blind or have low vision, museums often offer audio guides or tours. While these options improve accessibility, they do not always provide a complete aesthetic experience.

Cybersecurity researchers are contemplating how to best use the currently trending AI techniques to aid cybersecurity, beyond just for classification. 

The aim of this Honours project is to get the student to work with the supervisors on the latest AI techniques to adapt them over for cybersecurity, building first on baseline approaches for which code is available.

Cryptographic applications require a careful implementation to avoid side-channel attacks that reveal secret information to an attacker (e.g. via run-time measurements). In particular, for floating point arithmetic it is known that the timing of some basic arithmetic operations and functions on some CPUs depends on the input values [1], and thus the timing may leak secret information when the input contains secret values. Constant-time implementation tries to mitigate such run-time timing leakage on typical devices.

Following the success of the Human Genome Project, the entire scientific community witnessed a large data explosion in genomics, which was also aided by advances in molecular biology technologies such as next-generation sequencing. These high-throughput technologies enable comprehensive molecular profiling of cancer cell lines, including gene expression. Regardless of the use of gene-based assays, they provide abundant genomic information for identifying participating genes (biomarkers) that contribute to the chemoresistance process in cancer cells.

The need: Early detection and diagnosis of eye conditions is critically important as many diseases, including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration, often show minimal or even no symptoms. Glaucoma is called the "silent thief of sight" since it progressively damages the eyes without any noticeable signs.
