Feature detection and analysis in scientific data

Project description

As data sizes scale, feature detection & analysis are increasingly important aspects of scientific computation. However, these approaches are typically developed separately, with little or no interchange between topological methods, machine learning and other forms of analysis. The goal of this PhD would be to analyse the sets of approaches to this task, establish ontologies, articulate the space of possible feature detection methods, and deliver and implement innovative new and/or hybrid feature detection methods.
