Full time PhD students are intended to work on the STELLAR project. The subject of the thesis will be Definition and Measurement of Test Coverage Criteria in Machine-
Learning Models and Test Case Generation for Machine Learning Models based on Disagreement Discovery , which involve the development of effective techniques that can a) reliably measure and maintain the quality of training and test data that are used to build and evaluate ML models and b) generate test examples (similar to adversarial ones) that can improve confidence, identify issues and help securing the use of such ML models.
In particular the key attributes to be investigated regard the definition of appropriate test criteria and test data generation methods.
The successful PhD candidates will extensively explore and develop software engineering techniques that include the feasibility, practicality and success evaluation of prototype implementations
The team you will be working with :
Under the direction of a professor, the candidate will carry out research activities and write a thesis with the main goal of obtain a PhD in the area of Software Engineering.
disseminating results at international scientific conferences / workshops and peer reviewed scientific publications.
