Midlands3Cities is offering four fully-funded PhD studentships to work on innovative projects in the areas of Artificial Intelligence and Data-Driven Research.
Each research project is a collaboration between a Midlands3Cities university and an external partner.
Studentships will normally be for up to three years for full-time study, or up to six years for part-time study, starting at the beginning of the 2018/19 the academic year.
The projects demonstrate the sheer breadth of possibility in the research fields of Artificial Intelligence and Data-Driven analysis.
Addressing important cultural and industrial questions, and engaging with key partners, the projects show the scope of what an arts and humanities perspective can bring to AI.
