Please make use of the following Research question
Research Question: Can effective new machine learning
algorithms be developed using compression-based techniques?
Question: Can effective novel compression-based
methods be developed for existing machine learning algorithms that
significantly improve their performance?
Objectives of the PhD Research (during 3 years of Research Program)
Produce a state-of-the-art literature review of the area of machine
learning with a focus on the use of compression-based methods.
Develop new text compression-based machine learning algorithms.
Develop new compression-based techniques for improving existing machine
Compare the performance of the new methods by comparing with existing
state-of-the-art machine learning methods.
Writing PhD Research Proposal
Total about 1825 words excluding references
The Proposal should include:
1) PhD Title: Compression-based Machine Learning)
This is a short summary of the proposal. It should state the
research problem, its context, and its significance.
(Suggested word count: 150-200 words)
3) Literature review
4) Research Questions (Given Above)
You should identify the research questions which you will be
seeking to answer and explain why they are significant. What is the rationale
of your proposed study, and what will be its original contribution to

our methodology may include some of the following elements.
Please note, you do not have to include them all –
Approach to organising and analysing data;
Strengths and limitations of the design.
Potential challenges and ways to overcome them.
6) Timescale (Time table of duties to cover 3 years of Research Program)
You should sketch what you hope to achieve in each year of
your research – three years for a full-time
(suggested word count: 300)
Your proposal will
likely comprise the headings listed below, though exactly how much importance
you give to each section, and whether you include all these sections will
depend on what your area of academic interest is and your specific research
indicated above, note that PhD proposals are not fully binding. As your work
progresses, your ideas will mature, resulting in your research taking a
slightly different form from that which you envisaged at the start.
Nonetheless, you will be committed to the area – in broad terms – that you
identity in your proposal.
The title should
describe the nature of your project. Do not give uninformative titles. Often
students indicate the nature of their approach in the title, for example
indicating a comparative study or if a particular theoretical framework is
adopted. Being clear helps the School identify appropriate supervisors.
An abstract, should
you wish to include one, should be included immediately following the title and
should be a short, succinct summary of the proposal.
of topic and problem)
This section should
identify the general subject area and how your proposed thesis fits in with
this general field, explaining why it is significant/important and stating
briefly what contribution to the field it will make and its likely impact.
Assessors will be looking for clear focus, identifying the problem.
Aims and research
your research topic you should specify the aims of your research, what research
questions or hypotheses you will address and how answering these will
contribute to your chosen field.
A critical, initial
review of the relevant and related literature is required, to indicate your understanding
of what is already known and understood, and how this in-turn informs your
and timescale of research
An important aspect
of your proposal is to identify how you intend carrying out your research, to
address its aims and questions. Different research topics will use different
methods, which you should describe and justify. For example, you might develop
and evaluate a novel algorithm, tool or method; you might undertake detailed
quantitative or qualitative studies of technologies in use. Be clear regarding
the outcome of the various methods you will apply and demonstrate that you have
considered the feasibility of your chosen approach.
It is important at
this stage for you to demonstrate that the research you intend to undertake can
be realistically fit within the time frame of a PhD, which is three years
full-time (plus a further one year writing-up, submission and viva). Different
academics will likely have different expectations here. Some will likely require
quite a detailed plan of how you will conduct your research over the course of
a PhD, while others will require less detail.
You should list all
the publications and any other sources you have cited in your proposal as
references at the end. The
Harvard referencing system is used in the School and should be used for the
proposal; it is likely that you will be familiar with this system as it is
widely used. Howeve if you have not used this system before, or feel you need
to refresh your knowledge,
APA or the Harvard citation can be used
