Project Description

This project consists in implementing and evaluating a Dynamic Prediction System concept that uses Graph Neural Networks (GNNs). We have a special interest in understanding the level of cognition GNNs can acquire and this project would help our Ph.D. student to attempt this. During the first phase of the project, the UROP student will design and implement a GNN to address a specific prediction task. During the second phase, the model will be refined to improve its generalizability on additional prediction tasks.


Ideal candidates would have strong programming skills, existing knowledge and implementation experience with Machine Learning, and demonstrated research autonomy.
