HUMAINT: New research project on Human Behaviour and Machine Intelligence @ Joint Research Centre (EC) – We are hiring!

Postdoc application deadline: OCTOBER 26, 2017

casmihb

I am excited to lead a novel research initiative inside the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, on the topic of machine learning and human behaviour.

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission’s science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy. The JRC Centre for Advanced Studies (JRC-CAS) was established to enhance the JRC’s capabilities to meet emerging challenges at the science-policy interface. JRC-CAS is now launching a three year interdisciplinary project to understand the potential impact of machine learning in human behaviour and societal welfare. It will be carried out at JRC centre in Seville, Spain. There will be close collaboration with the Music Technology Group and the Department of Information and Communication Technologies of Universitat Pompeu Fabra  in Barcelona, Spain.

The HUMAINT project will (1) provide a scientific understanding of machine vs human intelligence; (2) analyze the influence of machine learning algorithms into human behaviour (3) investigate to what extent these findings should influence the European regulatory framework. Given my research expertise, music will be an important use case to address.

In the context of this project, three postdoc positions in the area of machine learning and human behaviour are open for appointment from January 1, 2018, at the Joint Research Centre (European Commission) in Seville, Spain. The fully funded positions are available for a period of three years. Particular areas of interests:

  • Fairness, accountability, transparency, explainability of machine learning methods.

  • Social, ethical and economic aspects of artificial intelligence.

  • Human-computer interaction and human-centered machine learning.

  • Digital and behavioural economy.

  • Application domains: music and arts, social networks, health, transport, energy.

We are looking for highly motivated, independent, and outstanding postdoc candidates with a strong background in machine learning and/or human behaviour. An excellent research track record, ability to communicate research results and involvement in community initiatives is expected. Candidates should have EU/EEA citizenship.

The JRC offers an enriching multi-cultural and multi-lingual work environment with lifelong learning and professional development opportunities, and close links to top research organisations and international bodies around the world. Postdoctoral researchers receive a competitive salary and excellent working conditions, and will define their own research agenda inline with the project goals.

JRC-Seville is located in Cartuja 93 scientific and technological park. Seville is the fourth-largest city in Spain. With more than 30 centuries of history (gateway of America for two centuries, main actor in the first circumnavigation of the Earth),  three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and privileged climate, it combines its historical and touristic character with a consolidated economic development and innovation potential.

We are also open for collaborations with external researchers, as one of our goals is to build an expert network in the topics.

You may obtain further information about the scientific aspects of the positions from Dr. Emilia Gómez (project scientific leader: emilia.gomez@upf.edu, using the subject [humaint]) and at the following web pages http://recruitment.jrc.ec.europa.eu/?site=SVQ&type=AX&category=FGIV and https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/working-with-us/jobs.

YOU CAN APPLY HERE BY OCTOBER 26, 2017 (first application round).

By the way, the positions are in Seville, the city I was born, one of the most beautiful places in the world 🙂

Resumen de mi colaboración con el programa Longitud de Onda

Aprovechando las vacaciones, he hecho una lista todos los programas de Longitud de Onda, espacio de Radio Clásica, en donde he tenido la suerte de colaborar. Ha sido una gran experiencia donde he aprendido mucho sobre divulgación científica y cómo hablar por la radio, lo cual no es uno de mis fuertes. Creo que se nota bastante el cambio entre el primer y el último programa, así que ¡gracias a Yolanda y Fernando por la confianza!.

¡Aquí los tenéis!
