Responsibilities/Job Description

We are looking Post Docs for the following Projects, please select one of them and mention it in the motivation letter.

Project 1: AI2Learn- Learning to Learn for Intelligent Systems

The postdoc will work on method development and adaptation of learning theory for AI algorithms to develop intelligent systems.  The aim here is to solve multiple tasks by one-shot or few shot learning.  The developed method should provide faster solution in terms of learning from few examples, also for sequence of tasks. Also, it should understand fairness in AI Systems.

This postdoc will play a key role in the development and adaptation of machine learning and deep learning domains and will work closely with PhD students, senior researchers, and industrial partners in the group.

Project 2: INCORE- Intelligent complex reasoning systems

This postdoc will work on the research and development of machine reasoning intelligence system through a theoretical AI framwork. Here, the research will focuse on going beyond machine learning to machine reasoning and combination of them. Both human-centred and autonomous machine reasoning/learning, AI/ML, higher levels of AI beyond ML, i.e. reasoning and decision making abilities in autonomous or in collaboration with humans.

Project 3: Foot- Federated and online learning in IIOT

The postdoc will work on federated and online learning for applications in IIOT. The aim will be to  develop distributed learning algorithms and tools to enable the learning to be performed incrementally at local computing nodes to enhance  time efficiency and  data privacy, while the learned model will be shared by different users for inference and decision making. This postdoc is strongly related to the EU project: INSECTT,, where distributed intelligence  is one crucial focus.

The position is a temporary employment of 2 years.
