If you just started or want to do a project or thesis with me, then please read my Lab Guide first.
I am open for supervising BSc and MSc (thesis) projects in my field of expertise and interest. Topics fit well if they are close to my general research description (main page) or my publications. Nevertheless, I am always open for new topics on the edge of my current research activities and particularly open for your own ideas.
The list of open topics below is indicative, thus directions and details are open for discussion. Also, this list is never complete and might get constantly extended and updated. Just contact me!
Probabilistic processing of sequences with multiple timescales
Modelling “chunking” the brain’s coolest mechanisms for hierarchical processing
Harvesting the brain’s “chunking” in Machine Learning applications
Explaining the brain with Machine Learning Models (on any cognitive task) by Representation Similarity Analysis
Modelling language decomposition from audio books across languages
Understanding and modelling the hierarchical processing of music
Learning to generate music by learning the hierarchical dependencies of high keys (melodies) and rhythm (e.g. base tracks)
Inductive bias in natural language processing: Study current approaches of adding linguistic structure to Transformer Models
Using Embodiment and the brain’s statistical Learning as Inductive Bias for Natural Language Processing Models
Towards Explainability in Natural Language Processing Models: What is my BERT doing?
Learn different heuristic policies in Atari games by Deep Reinforcement Learning
Guidelines for BSc and MSc Projects/Theses
If you have not read yet, please check my Lab Guide first. Second, check the ITU SAP guides for theses and projects.
