Research Fellow (Data analytics and maritime safety)

Date: 25 Jun 2024

Location: COLLEGE OF DESIGN & ENG, Kent Ridge Campus, SG

Company: National University of Singapore

Job Description

The selected Research Fellow is required to work on a research project related to big data driven vessel risk profile estimation and classification using Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based approaches. The first research focus of this project is to establish a multi-source vessel risk data mall. The multi-source data fusion approach will be conducted to establish a comprehensive vessel risk data mall. Alternatively, the unstructured text data in accident report could be mined with Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to validate the performance of our proposed multi-source data fusion method. To reduce the dimensionality and remove redundant information on the vessel risk profile, feature selection methods will also be utilised. The second research focus of this project is to develop an AI-based vessel risk level assessment engine. AI-based vessel risk assessment models will be developed, and the most significant contributing factors to vessel risk level will be identified.
