To date, traditional Deep Learning (DL) solutions (e.g. Feed-forward Neural Networks, Convolutional Neural Networks) have had a major impact in numerous fields, such as Speak Recognition (e.g., Siri, Alexa), Autonomous driving, Computer Vision,etc. It was just recently, however, that a new DL technique called Graph Neural Network (GNN) was introduced, proving to be unprecedentedly accurate to solve problems that are formalized as graphs.

Navigation meshes are necessary to represent the walkable space of an environment so that agents can perform pathfinding and move through them. Current navigation meshes tend to flatten the environmetn to represent it as 2D polygons connected by edges (square cells, triangles or larger convex polygons). This abstraction presents problems when dealing with complex outdor geometry where the terrain may not be completely flat. With this project, we would develop a novel navigation mesh that can keep the complexity of any 3D input geometry, while still generating small graphs

This is an offer for a PhD Dissertation, which can be initiated as a MS Thesis. We are working to design a domain-specific accelerator, in the context of high-performance computing, for homomorphically-encrypted deep learning inference. Previous cryptography experience is not required, since there will be an expert in the team advising on those matters. The successful candidate will be integrated into an international team of 9 members working toward this purpose on different topics.

In this project, we wish to create a summarized universal representation of packet flows within a computer network. We approach this problem as an Unsupervised Learning problem, where the summarized representation must be as small as possible while minimizing the reconstruction error. In order to build this representation, multiple approaches are to be considered. This includes using traditional techniques such as a Fourier Transformation, and using representations learned Machine Learning models, specifically Autoencoders and sequence models like 1-dimensional CNNs, RNNs

Dimensionality reduction algorithms transform high-dimensional data to lower dimensions, usually 2D or 3D. Analyzing the results of such algorithms typically is carried out using 2D plots and measures. The goal of the project is the creation of an application that facilitates the visual comparison and exploration of those spaces.

Recent advances in the field of Reinforcement Learning (DRL) are rising a lot of attention due to its potential for automatic control and automatization. Breakthroughs from academia and the industry (e.g, Stanford, DeepMind and OpenAI) are demonstrating that DRL is an effective technique to face complex optimization problems with many dimensions and non-linearities. However, to train a DRL agent in large optimization scenarios still remains a challenge due to the computational intensive operations during backpropagation.

Quantum computers promise exponential improvements over conventional ones due to the extraordinary properties of qubits. However, quantum computing faces many challenges relative to the scaling of the algorithms and of the computers that run them. This thesis delves into these challenges and proposes solutions to create scalable quantum computing systems.

Computing systems are ubiquitous in our daily life, to the point that progress is intimately tied to the improvements brought by new generations of the processors that lie at the heart of these systems. A common trait of current computing systems is that their internal data communication has become a fundamental bottleneck and traditional interconnects are just not good enough. This thesis aims to study how we can speed up architectures with CPUs, GPUs, and ML accelerators thanks to unconventional (e.g. wireless) interconnects.

This thesis aims to explore the possibilities of the new and less studied variant of neural networks called Graph Neural Networks (GNNs). While convolutional networks are good for computer vision or recurrent networks are good for temporal analysis, GNNs are able to learn and model graph-structured relational data, with huge implications in fields such as quantum chemistry, computer networks, or social networks among others.

We have been building at UPC a library called LoRaMesher that enables creating LoRa mesh network with embedded devices. The project should make a contribution to this open source library and help to make it more usable or showing new usages.

The syntactic structure of a sentence can be represented as a tree where vertices are words and arcs indicate syntactic dependencies between words. Syntactic dependency parsing is the branch of computational linguistic concerned with the extraction of syntactic dependency structures from raw text. This research proposal is focused on unsupervised syntactic dependency parsing, i.e. methods to extract syntactic dependency structures from unlabelled data. This projects consists of implementing simple unsupervised parsers and evaluating them on human languages and other species

Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a rare hereditary disease that predisposes to sudden cardiac death. The only risk marker is the presence of symptoms. In asymptomatic individuals with a typical electriocardiogram, an electrophysiological study can be performed, but is an invasive procedure. Therefore, the precise identification of patient at a high risk of BrS is a clinical priority. This project proposes the use of NLP and ML/DL techniques for the identification of BrS risk from the information in the Electronic Health Records of the patients.

We aim to analyze the impact of having a self-avatar versus not having one in immersive VR setups where the camera height changes. To do this, we plan to conduct a user study where participants are immersed in an environment and required to perform various tasks. Specifically, we want to determine if cybersickness is reduced when the camera height is higher than the participant's actual height and participants are represented by an avatar.
