PAI Link

The Postgraduate in Artificial Intelligence Link (PAI-Link) brings together PhD students in Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Data Science across the country. This project has multiple goals:

  • Providing a platform where AI CDT students can connect with fellow students across the country.
  • Allowing students to explore new areas in an accessible way by designing talks and workshops to have a tutorial style.
  • Providing an opportunity for students to present their work to a wide audience. This will be a platform build by PhD students for PhD students.
  • Attracting important and tailored industry speakers and “AI celebrities”.
  • Organizing challenges and collaborative tasks such as Hackathons and Kaggle-like competitions.

PAI-Link Seminar

On 25th June 2021 at 14:00



Mauro Camara Escudero

My PhD focuses on developing new representation learning methods such as Normalizing Flows, Variational Autoencoders and Generative Adversarial Networks to improve inference in simulator-based models with application in Population Genetics and Biology. I’m very happy to be supervised by Christophe Andrieu and Mark Beaumont.


Tonicha Crook

Hi, I’m Tonicha Crook!I have a Master degree in Mathematics and am currently studying for my PhD in Computer Science. My main research areas are Game Theory and Computability. I am part of the AIMLAC CDT, thats Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Advanced Computing.


Adam Lee

I am a first-year PhD student with the CDT in Distributed Algorithms at the University of Liverpool. My main focus is on Bayesian Inference through Gaussian Processes, with a particular interest on Big Data models.
I have a background in Applied Mathematics & Linear Algebra, but when I’m not being boring you can find me at the football or playing video games.


Marco Fontana

I’m a PhD student with the CDT in Distributed Algorithms at the University of Liverpool. My main interests are multi-target tracking and target detection in challenging scenarios. My background is in telecommunications engineering.


Thomas Spriggs

In my PhD I apply techniques from the fields of machine learning and data science to state-of-the-art particle simulations to uncover the nature of interactions that took place in the first moments of our Universes’ existence. I have a Master’s degree in theoretical physics from Durham University and currently study at Swansea University as part of the Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Advanced Computing scheme. I very much enjoy the interplay between physics and machine learning and think that is exactly what the PAI-link is about.
