IBM Research - Ireland Internship Project: AI for Anomaly Detection using Deep Reinforcement Learning - overview

Project Description:
Anomaly detection has wide applications including fraud detection, energy consumption
monitoring, automated trading, image processing, quality control, etc. Although a large number of
algorithms exist in the literature, timely and accurate detection of anomalies remains to be a
challenge. This intern project will be a part of the ongoing effort on detecting anomalies (data and
contextual) using fast  deep neural network algorithms and includes building an anomaly
simulator using probabilistic models, tuning deep neural networks for the detection of synthetic
anomalies, and applying the algorithms to IOT use cases. If time permits, this project will extend to
the anomaly diagnostics with autoencoders.
Required Skills:
Python, C++, Tensorflow, knowledge in deep learning, familiar with basic statistics
