Job Description

The research engineer will work on a research project related to the 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.

Job Requirements

  • Possess a Bachelor/ Master in Transportation, Computer Engineering/Science.
  • Experience in AIS data mining and fusion for maritime studies or related maritime projects.
  • Experience in developing/applying data-driven models in transportation research.
  • Ability to sophisticatedly use at least one programming language, e.g., Python, R, Java, SQL, Julia, C# and C++.
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
