PhD Studentship on Ethics-aware Cognitive Architectures for Ambient Intelligence (UK applicants only)
The selected candidate will study ambient intelligent systems, focusing on the artificial intelligence models and the cognitive architectures required to provide the services that we aim for. This will be done while accounting for the aforementioned economic and societal issues. Edge computing will be leveraged for privacy and energy efficiency purposes. Data curation and model auditing will be carefully studied and implemented to prevent systemic biases.
The student will deliver a cognitive architecture encompassing a series of state-of-the-art subsystems for perception, planning, user profiling and actuation, as well as a number of technology demonstrators to showcase the benefits of ethical ambient intelligence and the positive impact that it could have on our future society.
