Project Description

Student sought with an interest in understanding the impact of Information Communication Technology (ICT) generally and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in particular on contemporary economies, political systems, and societies. Useful background includes interest and experience in any of: computational biology, agent-based modelling, evolutionary modelling, data science, game theory, technical sociology, HCI, experimental psychology, massive online experiments, computer games. Experience in academic publication and/or conference presentation a plus.

You would be joining a diverse lab with many opportunities for impact and transdisciplinary collaboration. You should be creative and self-motivated, able to work alone but actively enthusiastic about working with others, both directly and via collaboration tools with those located in other countries and timezones. Strong undergraduate marks in at least some relevant courses required, good postgraduate degrees and references from dissertation supervisors are useful.

This project is associated with the UKRI CDT in Accountable, Responsible and Transparent AI (ART-AI), which is looking for its first cohort of at least 10 students to start in September 2019. Students will be fully funded for 4 years (stipend, UK/EU tuition fees and research support budget). Further details can be found at: http://www.bath.ac.uk/research-centres/ukri-centre-for-doctoral-training-in-accountable-responsible-and-transparent-ai/.

Desirable qualities in candidates include intellectual curiosity, a strong background in maths and programming experience.

Applicants should hold, or expect to receive, a First Class or good Upper Second Class Honours degree. A master’s level qualification would also be advantageous.
