موقعیت دکترا در کشور سوئد همراه با فاند
Doctoral student in artificial intelligence, natural language processing
KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
Third-cycle subject: Speech technology or Computer science
We are looking for a PhD student interested in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and Human-Robot Interaction, that will work in a newly funded project at the Department of Speech, Music and Hearing (www.kth.se/tmh) within the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at KTH. The project is financed by the Swedish AI-program WASP.
Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) is Sweden’s largest ever individual research program, a major national initiative for strategically basic research, education and faculty recruitment. The program is initiated and generously funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) with 2.6 billion SEK. In addition to this, the program receives support from collaborating industry and from participating universities to form a total budget of 3.5 billion SEK. Major goals are more than 50 new professors and more than 300 new PhDs within AI, Autonomous Systems and Software. The vision of WASP is excellent research and competence in artificial intelligence, autonomous systems and software for the benefit of Swedish industry. For more information about the research and other activities conducted within WASP please visit: http://wasp-sweden.org/
The newly started project is called “Robot learning of symbol grounding in multiple contexts through dialog”, and is a collaboration project between KTH and Örebro University. The aim of the project is to study computational models that allow a robot to learn language through interaction with humans, and to understand the meaning of words in their context (so-called ”symbol grounding”). The position is mainly a research position, with a small fraction of departmental duties (e.g. teaching). Applicants should have a Master degree (or similar) in a subject relevant for the research, such as computer science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, or language technology.
