Projects Hiring

The following funded projects are hiring Postdoctoral Research Fellows, Research Engineers, and Research Interns:

  1. Detecting and Monitoring Hate Speeches in Social Media - This proposal aims to design effective data analytical tools and machine learning algorithms to curb the spread of hate speech on social media. Specifically, we outline two main aims of this project: (i) Develop semi-supervised meta-learning algorithms to detect hate speech on multiple social media platforms. (ii) Designing multilingual analytical monitoring dashboards that monitor hateful social media content across Southeast Asian (SEA), interpreting content in native southeast Asian languages.

  2. Memenlytics: Understanding Memes in Social Media - The proposed project aims to improve our understanding of memes shared in online communities. More specifically, the project aims to design state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms and analytical tools that enable large-scale analysis of online memes. In addition, the developed algorithms and analytical tools will also support the analysis of memes based on Singapore context (e.g., expressing views towards Singapore government bodies and policies).

  3. Authorship Attribution on the Web - Authorship attribution (AA) is the task of determining the writer of an article. This proposed project aims to develop AA technologies for the content shared online. Specifically, the project aims to design state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms accompanied with analytical tools that empower analysts to perform AA on large-scale generated content. Besides making technical contributions, we aim to provide insights to empower analysts and platform providers to sieve out sock puppets from authentic authors. These new insights enabled by our developed AA techniques can also be used to design policies to foster a more cohesive online community.

  4. Text Analytics & Auto Reply - This project is funded by URA and it aims to design and develop natural language processing systems to support urban planning. Specifically, we will analyze and classify urban planning feedback from public users and extract relevant information for future urban planning. We will also design text generation systems that could automatically reply and respond to user feedback. This is an interdisciplinary project where the candidates will be working closely with architectural researchers and urban planners!

  5. ML techniques for automated understanding of medical records - This project is supported by ASUS AICS via the Economic Development Board Industrial Postgraduate Programme (EDB IPP). AICS is a newly founded division in ASUS focusing on AI software development. Asus AICS has been developing various solutions for healthcare that utilize the latest advancements in machine learning, computer vision and natural language understanding. We aim to recruit and fund two PhD students under this project. The PhD students will receive a full scholarship to design new natural language understanding (NLU) algorithms for healthcare and medical applications.
