PhD position in AI

  • In this project we will develop new AI systems that allow bringing the reasoning closer to how a human learns and reasons about the world. More specifically, we will target the following key characteristics where humans perform better at than traditional AI systems: 
    - humans can cope much better with hierarchical information structure;
    - humans are able to learn much faster and better from limited data, often exploiting previous knowledge;
    - humans are able to perform much more complex reasoning and go beyond simple pattern matching.
  • We are looking for a Master in Mathematics, Computer Science or Engineering with expertise or interest in image processing and machine learning in particular. Coding skills are required.
  • Interested candidates should submit a cover letter detailing background and interest in this position, a full C.V. and information about grades during each Bachelor and Master year via email to Ann.Dooms@vub.be before 15th of November 2019.
