Digital Futures Fellows

Digital Futures fellowship programs aim to support leading researchers. 

The regular fellowship program is targeted to regular faculty members at KTH or at Stockholm University to equip the most promising researchers of central importance for the strategic research area with a highly competitive startup or consolidation package.

The first call for proposals was directed exclusively toward faculty members who were previously recruited with an SRA ICT-TNG startup package and the following Digital Futures Fellows were awarded: Jonas Beskow, Roberto Guanciale, Henrik Boström, Kristina Höök, Saikat Chatterjee, Tobias Oechtering, Carlo Fischione, Alexandre Proutiere, Sarunas Girdzijauskas, Petter Ögren and James Gross.

Digital Futures also awards fellowships where the purpose is strategic faculty recruitment. This award can be received by candidates who are not (yet) regular faculty members at KTH or Stockholm University. Emil Björnson, who is a regular faculty member at LiU and a guest professor at KTH, is the first recipient of the Digital Futures Fellowship for strategic strategy recruitment.

Wireless connectivity is a key enabler for the digital transformation of society, and we start to take its availability for granted. Although the wireless data speeds have grown tremendously, we still experience unreliable wireless coverage; for example, video streaming might work flawlessly until it suddenly stalls when you walk around a corner...

In many application areas, it is not sufficient to present the output of machine learning models to the users without providing any information on what leads to the specific predictions or recommendations and how (un)certain they are. The strongest machine learning models are however often essentially black-boxes...

Data has all the information, and efficient processing of data for information extraction is a key to achieving the right decision. Computers help to understand the data, extract important information and then finally provide a decision. Computers use a particular tool from the engineering field of computer science...

Over the last decade, academia and the industry of networked systems have become more and more interested in novel real-time applications. These applications arise for one in the area of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) where essentially time-sensitive processes are to be governed by direct actuation...

One of the main causes of the insecurity of IT systems is complexity. For example, the Linux kernel has been designed to run on all possible platforms (including our IoT light bulb, the largest supercomputer, and the International Space Station) and includes all sorts of features to accommodate several usage scenarios...
