Position: PhD position in Microdata Analysis, specialising in Artificial Intelligence
Institution: Dalarna University College
Location: Dalarna County, Sweden
Duties: Topic of the project The successful candidate will work in the field of neuro evolution and autonomous learning. This paradigm expects machines to explore and observe the environment, make predictions and ultimately learn much more like their human counterparts. Genetic algorithms are used to make systems able to autonomously learn. This work involves questions about forming memory and representations, using representations to inform decision making, theory of mind, artificial consciousness, and allows for comparisons to other machine learning methods like deep or reinforcement learning
Requirements: To be admitted to doctoral studies in Microdata Analysis, the applicant must meet both the general and specific entry requirements and have the capacity required to benefit from doctoral studies in this field
