  • 2 Postdoctoral researchers in interactive AI and machine learning at Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland. - Oct 18, 2017.
    1. Probabilistic machine learning with human in the loop (Prof. Samuel Kaski) - One of the core questions in machine learning at the moment is how to interact with humans. We turn this question into a probabilistic modelling problem, and model both the user and the task to drive the interaction. The solutions need combinations of probabilistic modelling, reinforcement learning and approximate Bayesian computation. We are looking for a postdoc who already masters some of these and offer an opportunity to learn the rest and work with us on this exciting bleeding-edge problem. 2. Modeling and machine learning in HCI (Prof. Antti Oulasvirta) - The position offers an exciting opportunity to learn about and work on applications of machine learning methods and computational models of cognition, perception, and behavior in interactive systems.
