Building on Bristol’s world-leading expertise in AI and human-computer interaction, the Centre for Doctoral Training in Interactive Artificial Intelligence offers PhD studentships that will train you to become a leader in responsible human-in-the-loop AI systems.
For full details of the studentships, see: www.bristol.ac.uk/cdt/interactive-ai.
This unique Centre is based in the School of Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Engineering Mathematics. Its mission is to deliver cohorts of highly-trained PhD graduates with the skills to design and implement complex interactive AI pipelines solving societally important problems.
As Artificial Intelligence is deployed across an expanding range of scenarios, getting the interaction between humans and intelligent machines right is critical. Our Interactive AI (IAI) doctoral training programme has been designed from the ground up to train the next generation of research leaders who will address this challenge in innovative ways.
After the taught first year, covering foundational topics in data-driven AI, knowledge-driven AI, human-AI interaction and responsible AI, you will undertake a 3-year research project, supervised by one of the 60 academics in the supervisory network and in close collaboration with one or more external partners. The Centre partners with a wide range of external organisations including Microsoft Research, Amazon Research, Dyson, Thales, and many others.
In addition to being part of a world-leading research and training environment, IAI students will benefit from a wide range of extra training opportunities, events and support structures:
Throughout the Centre’s PhD programme the students will be encouraged to be ambitious in accelerating the pace of innovation, but will also be challenged to think more broadly about the role of disruptive new technologies in AI – they will be trained and experienced in ethics, fairness, regulation and law, privacy and transparency.
Applicants must hold/achieve a minimum of an upper-second class honours degree in a relevant discipline (e.g., computer science, engineering, mathematics, statistics).
Enhanced EPSRC studentships covering fees and living costs are available to UK / EU students (subject to eligibility requirements, see details on-line).
