Meaningful Human Control of Autonomous Intelligent Systems – Vacancy for 8 Postdoctoral Researchers

August 27th, 2018|Categories: Artificial Intelligence, Vacancies in Delft|

TU Delft’s research program AiTech is recruiting 8 fully funded postdoctoral research positions in the field of meaningful human control of autonomous intelligent systems. Such systems include artificial intelligence (AI) in software (e.g. for recommendation, decision support and optimization), as well as embodied AI (e.g. robots, vehicles and intelligent devices). AI Tech believes that human control is key to counterbalance unforeseen and undesirable potential shortcomings of AI and robotics.

Bridging the Gap Between New Technology and Safety & Responsibility of Self-Driving Cars

June 11th, 2018|Categories: Artificial Intelligence, Profiles of DDFV Researchers|

Self-driving cars are no longer science-fiction. Although many benefits are expected of automated driving systems (ADS), such as reducing congestion and less crashes, ethical concerns also arise. A responsible transition toward automated driving is desirable. In the project ‘Meaningful human control over automated driving systems’ dr. Filippo de Santoni de Sio contributes towards this transition by analyzing ethical issues concerning ADS.
