[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoctoral position in Reinforcement Learning and Explainable AI

Subramanian Ramamoorthy
Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate in a project funded by DARPA within the Explainable Artificial Intelligence programme. The position will be based in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.

The project, titled COGLE: Common Ground Learning and Explanation, is in collaboration with Palo Alto Research Centre Inc. (PARC), Carnegie Mellon University, University of Michigan, Florida Institute for Human & Machine Cognition and the US Military Academy at West Point. The project aim is to develop a highly interactive sense-making system which is able to explain the learned performance capabilities of autonomous systems to human users. Towards this end, our group will focus on machine learning methods to construct decision policies for an autonomous system to perform a variety of missions, as well as methods to induce representations of the models and policies at varying levels of abstraction.

The particular focus of the Postdoctoral Research Associate on this project will be to develop (hierarchical) methods for task and motion planning, to develop methods for program induction and to connect the two in order to devise novel methods for reinforcement learning of policies that are also amenable to explanation and causal reasoning. Experiments will be carried out in domains including flight mission planning with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The work in this project is synergistic to several other recently awarded large projects within our institute. So, the Research Associate will have the opportunity to collaborate, both with a cohort of other similar Research Associates within the School and the world class faculty covering all areas of machine learning, AI and robotics.

The post is available from 1 December 2017 for 3 years. The closing date for applications is 27 November 2017.
