Research Fellow (Citizen-Centric AI Systems)
Agents, Interactions & Complexity
University of Southampton, UK
Location:  Highfield Campus
Salary:   £30,942 to £33,797 – per annum
Full Time Fixed Term (for 36 months)

You will work on an exciting new project on citizen-centric AI systems. This project is funded via a prestigious £1.4M UKRI Turing AI Acceleration Fellowship that supports world-leading AI research.

The vision of this project is to develop AI systems with people at their heart. These citizen-centric AI systems learn the preferences of individual users to provide personalised services and advice in important application areas such as smart transportation, energy and disaster response. To ensure trustworthiness, these systems safeguard privacy by learning and making decisions locally, for example on a user’s smart device.

You will design fundamental algorithms and models for learning the preferences of users, using techniques such as interactive preference elicitation and inverse reinforcement learning.… read more. “Job: Research Fellow on Citizen-Centric AI Systems at University of Southampton”

Job: Senior Research Assistant in IoT, Design and Creative Technology, Northumbria University, UK

Call for Applications

Senior Research Assistant
IoT, Design and Creative Technology
Faculty of Arts, Design and Social Sciences
Northumbria University
Newcastle, UK
Full-time 18-month position from April 2021
https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/work-for-us/job-vacancies/academic-3321-senior-research-assistant-in-design-and-creative-technology

Application deadline: February 12, 2021

Northumbria University seeks to recruit a Senior Research Assistant with expertise in participatory design and creative technologies as part of the PETRAS-funded Reappearing Computer project (REAPPEAR). As the vision of a “disappearing computer” has become a reality, technologies have been designed to obscure the way they work-such as the data they collect, or the remote servers they rely on-making it hard for end users to understand and make decisions about IoTs privacy and security. REAPPPEAR will develop and demonstrate new metaphors and design patterns for physical products that cause the hidden workings of connected objects to “reappear”. Co-designing with the public and industry (including project partners Mozilla, Simply Secure and ThingsCon), the project will offer a new shared vision for more trusted IoT.… read more. “Job: Senior Research Assistant in IoT, Design and Creative Technology, Northumbria University, UK”
