I need an expert with research background. The project will run for 2 years.
* Research proposal (will be done by the freelancer). It should clearly state research objectives and deliverables. The contributions of study over existing approaches, methodology, anticipated outcomes.
* First Milestone (First 6 month period): Contain mainly Literature Review and implementation of basic models, etc.
* Second Milestone (6-12 months): Moving according to ideas given by you and project advisors. Preparing a detailed "Progress report-1"
* Third Milestone (12-18 months): Moving according to ideas given by you and project advisors. Preparing a detailed "Progress report-2"
* Fourth Milestone (18-24 months): Completing the study with contributions to existing approaches.
The projects' topic is on data mining (especially on ant based clustering algorithms). But if you have a PhD thesis, we can use it as a base to come with improvements. For example, let we say you have a background with geographic information systems, we may integrate ant based clustering to your model and so on.
My budget is confined to 10000 dollars in total.
Implementations can be done in Java, C# or Matlab.
IMPORTANT: This is initial post for feasibility. The project will start with September 2013.
Please contact with me if you find above schema acceptable.
