Xsights is searching for an outstanding research student based at Curtin University to undertake an industry-based PhD focusing on the development of new machine learning approaches and applications within the agricultural technologies domain.
The research student will design, develop, implement, and evaluate machine learning models and architectures based on physiological data used to assess animal health and welfare and utilise these measures to identify abnormalities, predict adverse outcomes, and accommodate other applications of value.
This is a high-profile, industry-based research collaboration concerned with developing scalable digital solutions for the agricultural industry to support data-driven decision making and enhance day today livestock management.
The selected student will be afforded the opportunity to engage with multiple key stakeholders including Xsights, Food Agility, the Curtin Institute for Computation, and the Craig Mostyn Group to utilise research to drive the development of impactful products which solve significant real world problems through the lens of academic frameworks.
This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated research student with a passion for machine learning and its application within the broader application development space to utilise their expertise to support the creation of transformative digital solutions whilst also providing significant contributions to the broader research community.
