Uncertainty estimation and confidence calibration for deep neural networks
Are you looking for an internship in artificial intelligence research? Would you like to discover the work of an artificial intelligence researcher/data scientist? Then apply now! We look forward to you joining us as a student (d/f/m) at Airbus Central Research and Technology, XRD. (35 hours/week, flexi-time).
As a student within XRD you will gain an insight into our research on next-after-next generation artificial intelligence (and data science) algorithms and solutions for challenges across all Airbus divisions within an international and multidisciplinary team, working together across multiple countries.
Start: as soon as possible
Duration: 3-6 months
Despite the success of deep learning in many application areas, neural networks still suffer from some major shortcomings. That might unfortunately limit their use especially in safety-critical scenarios. One severe limitation is the complete lack of predictive uncertainty estimates and well-calibrated confidence scores.
Within the frame of this internship, we therefore want to explore potential solutions together with you. This may include post-hoc calibration methods such as temperature scaling or Bayesian approaches for training neural networks such as variational inference. Moreover, this might also involve conformal prediction.
We offer you some exciting tasks :
· Conduct a comprehensive literature review on recent algorithms for uncertainty quantification and confidence calibration in the context of deep learning
· Choose or refine which of those topics you would like to work on
· Implement cutting-edge methods and develop new algorithmic solutions
· Work on public datasets (e.g. MNIST) or real-world safety-critical use cases
You offer :
· Enrolled full time student within Computer Science, Engineering, Data Science, Mathematics, Statistics, or a similar field of study
· Experience with Python and its ecosystem, preferably including TensorFlow or PyTorch
· Knowledge of machine learning, neural networks, probability theory and statistics
· Fluency in English
You are a good team player, have excellent communication skills, and are able to work independently.
