Based in Milton Keynes
Full-time, Fixed-term contract for 36 months

Application closed on: Sunday 01 March 2020.

The Knowledge Media Institute invites applications for an Early Stage Researcher to work in the area of bias in Artificial Intelligence. The researcher will work within the interdisciplinary community of the NoBias project and will pursue a PhD in Computer Science at the Open University as part of their 3-year engagement with the project.

NoBIAS Artificial Intelligence without Bias, is a project funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Grant Agreement No. 860630.

NoBIAS aims at developing novel methods for AI-based decision making without bias by taking into account ethical and legal considerations in the design of technical solutions. The core objectives of NoBIAS are to understand legal, social and technical challenges of bias in AI-decision making, to counter them by developing fairness-aware algorithms, to automatically explain AI results, and to document the overall process for data provenance and transparency.

NoBIAS will train a cohort of 15 ESRs (Early-Stage Researchers) to address problems with bias through multi-disciplinary training and research in computer science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, law and social science. ESRs will acquire practical expertise in a variety of sectors from healthcare, telecommunication, finance, marketing, media, software, and legal consultancy to broadly foster legal compliance and innovation. Technical, interdisciplinary and soft skills will give ESRs a head start towards future leadership in industry, academia, or government.
