The Feuer International Scholarships in AI are prestigious and highly competitive. Funded by successful Warwick alumnus Jonathan Feuer, they were established to create a group of extremely talented, academically brilliant, world-leading young researchers who will go on to have careers in the field of AI.
Up to three full scholarships are available for October 2019 entry. Further scholarships will be available for entry in October 2020. The deadline for initial expressions of interest for October 2019 entry is 31 January 2019.
Excellent candidates interested in pursuing a PhD are invited to apply for this PhD Studentship in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick. The research topic falls under the general themes of Data Science and Data Systems, with particular emphasis on investigating the cross-fertilization of Statistical Machine Learning and data Systems.
The project will use agent-based modelling to develop mechanisms for norm emergence and behaviour change, to encourage desirable behaviours (e.g. using active travel instead of driving). Typically, norm emergence is facilitated through incentivisation mechanisms in the form of recommendations, rewards, or punishments. This project will consider the social effects of such interventions, along with issues of transparency, trust and fairness.
Candidates should have a computer science or related scientific background, strong analytical skills, and experience of programming (or an aptitude for programming).
