The "Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial (IRI), CSIC-UPC" is seeking a highly motivated applicant with a keen interest in doing research in Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) applied to manipulation robotic problems in the framework of the COHERENT project. The postdoc will be supervised by Dr. Júlia Borràs and Dr. Guillem Alenyà.
The applicant will work within the European CHIST-ERA project "COHERENT” offering possibilities of collaboration with our project partners, King’s College London (KCL) in the UK and Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II (UNINA) in Italy.
IRI is a Joint University Research Institute participated by the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) that conducts research in human-centered robotics and automatic control. The institute, is a key player in the Spanish robotics and automatic control scenes, and a valued participant in a large number of international collaborations including more than ten ongoing H2020 projects and an ERC Advanced Grant. It has been recognized as a Maria de Maeztu Excellence Unit, the main accreditation given by the Spanish Government to research units that stand out for the impact and international relevance of their results.
ABOUT COHERENT PROJECT
The position is linked to "COHERENT: COllaborative HiErarchical Robotic ExplaNaTions", a CHIST-ERA European project which seeks to improve trust and
reliability in robots by developing a framework capable of generating explanations during a robot action. The idea of the project is to synthesize an explanation from the different explainable machine learning methods that occur at the different robotic layers: decision making, perception and action execution.
XAI is becoming a trending research topic the more society comes to depend on machine learning-based dynamic systems. In the near future, clearer accountability will be required for decision making processes to ensure trust and transparency.
ABOUT THE CONTRACT
The postdoc will be incorporated into the Perception and Manipulation Group of IRI. S/he will be hired through a 2-year postdoctoral contract with a salary in the range of 30000 to 40000 € gross per year, depending on experience and skills. The incorporation will be take place as soon as possible.
