PhD position, 36-months: Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, E-Education
IMT Atlantique, Lab-STICC
Supporting Self-Regulation Learning Using Dynamic Bayesian Networks

We seek for a modelling approach following these three steps:
1) Define relevant features for predicting students’ SRL classifications. This may include theoretical aspects of the SRL process, as well as knowledge about interactions with the learning environment.
2) Design and develop a DBN on the basis of these well-defined features.
3) Design understandable learning visualisations using an OLM approach to allow the user (learner, teacher, ...) for viewing content and making decisions.
These three main steps will guide the development of a predictive model that will be informed from empirical corpus data as well as a theoretical understanding of a self-regulated process.

Candidate Profile
The candidate should hold a Master 2 degree or an Engineer degree (Bac+5) in Computer Science, with a good background in Machine Learning and Data Science.
Recruitment requirements:
- Good knowledge in Bayesian Networks or Probabilistic Graphical Models is appreciated.
- Good relational skills.
- High interest for research in Artificial Intelligence and E-Education (AIED) domains.
