Postdoc in resilient learning for edge computing

Publicerad 2022-12-08

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Job description

The Division of Network and Systems Engineering at the Department of Computer Science in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the area of resilient learning and edge computing. With a focus on multi-agent learning in the context of edge computing, we are particularly interested in addressing fundamental problems related to resource management, learning equilibria in games, and equilibrium performance potentially under adversarial behavior. Of interest are also approaches leveraging state-of-the-art neural architectures, including graphical models and federated learning. We will use the developed models for the design of topologies and learning algorithms that are resilient to noise and to adversarial behavior and allow to reach good system performance. The methodological results will be applied in a variety of critical infrastructures, from smart grids through building automation to railways.
