Postdoctoral research associate in machine learning - conceptualization of space and objects in simulated robots

03 aprilie 2017

A postdoctoral research associate position is available within a EU-funded project. The postdoctoral research associate will work on studying, in simulated robot-like agents, the emergence of concepts and cognitive structures related to space and objects. This will be based on machine learning models that allow artificial agents to develop structured, hierarchical representations of its environment, by interacting with this environment. These models will integrate and develop upon curiosity-based learning, Bayesian theories of deep learning, representation learning, and reinforcement learning. More information.
