PhD position in Field of Fairness, an Ethical Dimension of Artificial Intelligent Systems

We have a vacancy for a position as PhD fellow at the Department of Computer Science (IDI) in the field of fairness, an ethical dimension of Artificial Intelligent Systems. Ethical aspects of AI systems are recognised as an important issue for the application of AI today, especially in the context of decision-making using machine learning. A model learned with biased data may generate unfair decisions while mitigating the bias may decrease the traditional measures of system accuracy. 

This project will investigate methods for the trade-off between predictive accuracy and fairness. Multi-objective optimisation methods together with evolutionary multi-agent techniques will be applied.  The research will be carried out in an interdisciplinary environment, involving philosophy and social science in addition to AI.
