The University encourages applications from people of all abilities. Disclosure of any form of disability will not negatively impact upon the academic process when making decisions regarding admission onto a course at this University.
The information is by no means definitive: it includes only information about bursary competitions sent to the University by specific organisations and will be updated on a regular basis as and when we receive relevant information. The University provides a limited amount of funding to support PGR students during their research so that they can attend conferences and workshops etc.
Your Expression of Interest will be considered and you will be informed of any decisions by email. If your expression of interest is supported by the relevant Head of Department/School, you will be invited to submit your Full Application.
Fill in the Full Application sections of the on-line application form – using the guidance within the form. You can re-enter and complete your application at times convenient to yourself. Please make sure that you complete your full application before the closing date for applications for your chosen entry date. A key element of your Full Application will be a detailed outline of your proposed research or, if you are applying for either a professional doctorate or a funded doctoral scholarship (where the research topic is already defined), a personal statement in support of your application. If applying to study for a research degree at the University you will need to submit a research proposal of approximately 3000 words. Particular attention will be paid to clarity of expression and also the structure, coherence and flow of argument. You should always include a short bibliography with your research proposal that lists books and articles to which you have made reference in your proposal. You will not be obliged to adhere to the specifics of your proposal if you are offered a place as a research degree candidate, but as the proposal is the foundation of your working relationship with your prospective supervisors it cannot be altered without discussion and consultation with them. If you do not submit a research proposal we will be unable to consider your application. Click on the link for .
You will need to fill in a short Expression of Interest. This asks for a little more information about you and a 500 word summary of your proposed area of research. This is then sent to the relevant Head of Department/School. Please make the most of this opportunity to use the maximum word count; the more detail about your proposed research topic you provide the easier it will be for colleagues to make a decision whether or not to invite you to submit a full application. A short sentence is not acceptable and will not be considered.
The can be implemented on a traditional computer and solvesany given computational problem in an optimal fashion inspired by Kurt Gödel's celebrated self-referential formulas (1931).
Researchers will develop diverse robot teams and simulate complex, real-world environments, as they crack open new multidisciplinary avenues to explore the potential of these combined advanced robotic technologies. [Read the full story]

Using an efficient proof searcher,the Gödel machine will rewrite any part of its software(including the proof searcher)as soon as it has founda proof that this will improve its future performance,given the utility function and the typically limited computational resources.
Self-rewrites are globally optimal (no local maxima!) since provably noneof all the alternative rewrites and proofs (those that could be found by continuing the proof search) are worth waiting for.
The MPhil is an award of considerable distinction in its own right, and is awarded for the successful completion of a substantial element of research or equivalent enquiry. The MPhil differs from the PhD only in terms of the scope of study required, demonstrated by the shorter word limit of 60,000, and the extent of the original personal contribution to knowledge.
To apply for postgraduate study you must satisfy the University’s general entry requirements as well as any specific requirements for your chosen programme. Applications are assessed based upon academic excellence and other relevant experience, and how closely your research proposal aligns with Liverpool Hope’s key research areas. We will also look for evidence of your interest in the programme and an understanding of the rigorous demands of postgraduate study.
Our neural nets also set numerous world records, and were the (2009),the (2012),the (2012),and the first machine learning methods to reach in a contest (2011).
Applicants applying for PhD should normally possess a Masters degree which matches the descriptor for a Level 7 qualification in the UK Framework of Higher Education Qualifications, and compromises:
