Early notice - Call for applications - Science of Ingtelligence

                *Early notice*

Call for applications - Science of Intelligence Berlin - Cluster of
Excellence

6 PhD and 5 Postdoc positions

Cross-disciplinary research in artificial intelligence, machine learning,
control, robotics, computer vision, behavioral biology, cognitive science,
psychology, educational science, neuroscience, and philosophy.

Starting dates: Summer / Fall 2020
Duration: 3 years
Salary level: TV-L 13, 100%

What are the principles of intelligence, shared by all forms of intelligence,
no matter whether artificial or biological, whether robot, computer program,
human, or animal? And how can we apply these principles to create intelligent
technology? Answering these questions - in an ethically responsible way - is
the central scientific objective of the new Cluster of Excellence Science of
Intelligence.

Researchers from a multitude of analytic and synthetic disciplines -
artificial intelligence, machine learning, control, robotics, computer vision,
behavioral biology, cognitive science, psychology, educational science,
neuroscience, and philosophy - join forces to create a multi-disciplinary
research program across universities and research institutes in Berlin.

Our approach is driven by the insight, that any method, concept, and theory
must demonstrate its merits by contributing to the intelligent behavior of a
synthetic artifact, such as a robot or a computer program. These artifacts
represent the shared "language" across disciplines, enabling the validation,
combination, transfer, and extension of research results. Thus we expect to
attain cohesion among disciplines, which currently produce their own theories
and empirical findings about aspects of intelligence.

Interdisciplinary research projects have been defined which combine analytic
and synthetic research and which address key aspects of individual, social,
and collective intelligence.
In addition, the Science of Intelligence graduate program promotes the
cross-disciplinary education of young scientists on a Master, PhD, and
postdoctoral level. All PhD students associated with the cluster are expected
to join the Science of Intelligence doctoral
program.

Stay tuned for more information on application deadline and procedure!
