We are interested in improving the ability for analysts to make sense of data by elevating Visual Analytic Systems from passive tools to proactive partners in data analyses. In this PhD project, the successful candidate will develop machine learning approaches and annotation setup of underlying training data to translate natural language expressions of users’ data analytic goals, to specifications of data visualisations and analysis recommendations that can support these goals. The PhD topic is at the forefront of research in Machine Learning, Visual Analytics, and Information Visualisation.
The applicants must include a personal statement highlighting your background and experience in relation to the topic (approx. 1000 words).
