Our Exciting Opportunity

 

In this master thesis project you will join us in our quest at crafting smart and efficient datacenters and cloud solutions. With the expected continued growth in the datacenter market, the cost of operating and running them need to be lowered. We anticipate that datacenters of tomorrow will be highly autonomous and require less on-site maintenance than today. Their energy efficiency can be improved on. To accomplish this the datacenters and cloud services must be instrumented and supervised to collect operational data and metrics. Then, this is fed into a powerful data analytics engine. Neural networks and reinforcement learning are key building block in this vision.

 

To be successful in the role you must have

 

The objective is to extend our current anomaly detection framework, which is based on log file data, to also consider metric data from the IT-equipment and facilities. This will require a machine learning approach that supports reasoning based on data of different categories, i.e., both text and values. We will be working with data from a real, large scale cloud service, as well as data from our virtual cloud lab. If successful, the applications will become an integral part of the Ericsson data-driven operations toolbox.

We expect the applicants to be familiar with various AI related concepts and technologies. Examples of these are supervised and unsupervised machine learning, classification and regression, reinforcement learning, and transfer learning. Most likely you are a final year master student, majoring in computer science, computer engineering, physics engineering, applied mathematics, or a similar topic.
