I remember reading somewhere that you should be able to explain your PhD thesis in one sentence that everyone can understand. If you aren’t able to do this then you do not properly understand your own work.
So here goes my effort:
“Using artificial intelligence to help show us how to improve the environment”
That is it… That is what my PhD is about. If you want slightly more detail I can replace AI and environment to be more specific and say:
“Using deep reinforcement learning to help show us how to improve the control of wastewater treatment systems”
Alright. I’m going to stop talking now, I have already written way too many sentences!
