The CODeS research group at KULAK focuses on the link between Data Science and Optimisation. Presently we can offer three PhD positions for research in this field. CODeS typically uses heuristic algorithms to solve real world problems. The current PhD positions are framed to investigate the link between AI and heuristics for combinatorial optimisation. Possiblie subjects are on automated algorithm configuration and tuning, automated algorithm construction based on available data, white box methodology for the analysis of algorithm behaviour, using polynomially solvable instances to describe the solution space of non polynomially solvable instances, using declarative formalisms to better describe problems and solution methodologies.
