Responsibilities/Job Description

For this position, research will be conducted within project CPMXai – Cognitive Predictive Maintenance and Quality Assurance using Explainable Ai and Machine Learning.

CPMXai aims to develop a digital twin for cognitive predictive maintenance through automatic data labelling, AI/ML and Explainable AI (XAI) to reduce unwanted situations and enhance maintenance in manufacturing and production processes.  CPMXai has 3 objectives i.e., 1) identify use cases in the industries, 2) develop a new automatic data labelling tool with the help of digital twin and lastly, 3) develop a self-monitoring, self-learning, self-explainable system to predict.

CPMXai is a Production 2030 project funded by Vinnova comprises with 8 different partners including 5 industries in Sweden.

The position focus is on computer vision, image processing, advanced data analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and signal processing; as well as data modeling for digital twin and cognitive predictive maintenance. The work requires theoretical studies on the state of art, together with software development and testing. As a PhD student, you are expected to develop independent ideas and to communicate research results in oral and written form. The employment includes collaboration and co-production within the industrials’ partners.
