What will you be doing?
Big Data and Data Science (AI & ML) are increasingly popular topics because of the advantages they can bring to companies. The data analysis is often done in long-running processes or even with an always-online streaming process. This data analysis is almost always done within different types of limitations: from users, business perspective, from hardware and from the platforms on which the data analysis is running. At TNO we are looking into ways of verifying whether a running distributed analysis meets these limitations and requirements. We have some experience in working with constraints for IT systems.
Your challenge would be to investigate and experiment on capturing the different kinds of constraints that can be defined on a system, and to develop a solution that can validate a running data analysis against these constraints. The validation against given constraints should happen in runtime when it is needed (for example, when new constraints are added).
What do we require of you?
Knowledge of distributed systems (through the Scalable Computing course) and good understanding of mathematics/logic are key, and we are looking for people that enjoy both research as well as the actual development of software. TNO provides a physical cluster to run your experiments on.
What can you expect of your work situation?
TNO is an independent research organisation whose expertise and research make an important contribution to the competitiveness of companies and organisations, to the economy and to the quality of society as a whole.

Working together on new knowledge, better products and clear recommendations for policy and processes. In everything we do, impact is the key.
