About the Project
The aim of this project is to combine cutting-edge research at the intersection of human-computer collaboration and explainable in AI in service of building computer systems that learn to collaborate with their human users and guide their interaction over time.
• Project specific skills include ability to conduct cutting edge research, conduct experiments, work in a diverse group of other students.
• Programming skills include Python, R or similarly high level programming language.
• A good Bachelors degree (2.1 or above or international equivalent) and/or Masters degree in a relevant subject (physics, mathematics, engineering, computer science, or related subject)
• Proficiency in English (both oral and written)
• Knowledge of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence methods is highly desirable.
Applicants should apply via the University’s admissions portal (EUCLID) and apply for the following programme: AIAI PhD program http://edin.ac/34iSeqI with a start date of 01 Feb 2021.
Applicants should state “Explainable AI and human-computer collaboration” and the research supervisor (Dr Kobi Gal) in their application and Research Proposal document.
Complete applications submitted by 01 Sept 2020 will receive full consideration; after that date applications will be considered until the position is filled.
Applicants must submit:
• All degree transcripts and certificates (and certified translations if applicable)
