Post-Doctoral Researcher, INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics, School of Computer Science and Information Technology

24 Months, Fixed-Term, Whole-time Post
 
Position Summary
 
We invite applications from suitably qualified Post-Doctoral Researchers to work in the area of AI explainability on the iSee project. The position will suit a newly qualified Post-Doctoral Researcher. The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr Derek Bridge who is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science & Information Technology, University College Cork, Ireland and a Principal Investigator in the Insight Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Data Analytics.
 
iSee stands for Intelligent Sharing of Explanation Experiecne by Users for User. It is a collaboration between University College Cork (Ireland),  Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen (Scotland) and BT France. The project will show how users of Artificial Intelligence (AI) can capture, share and re-use their experiences of AI explanations with other users who have similar explanation needs. The project team will provide a platform using Case-Based Reasoning that enables users to experiment with and evaluate explanations. Once captured, explanation experiences can be reused, on the premise that similar user needs can be met with similar explanation strategies.
 
iSee will develop an ontology for describing explanation strategies; develop measures to evaluate their applicability and suitability; and design a representation to capture experiences of using explanation strategies. The project will exhibit a number of high-impact use cases and will work with real-world users to co-design the representations and algorithms described above and to evaluate and validate the approach. iSee will also propose possible routes by which companies could certify compliance with explainable AI regulations and guidelines.
In University College Cork, working closely in conjunction with our partners, we will explore how users interact with the iSee platform. For example, a user whose explanation needs are not met by one explanation might be seek a complementary explanation of a different type. Furthermore, even these interactions can be shared and possibly re-used. We will record in the case base a composite explanation strategy that captures each of the explanations that was shown to the user.
 
iSee is a project that that falls under the CHIST-ERA programme. CHIST-ERA (European Coordinated Research on Long-term Challenges in Information and Communication Sciences & Technologies ERA-NET) is a coordination of national and regional research funding organisations in Europe and beyond and is supported by the Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme of the European Union through the ERA-NET Cofund scheme. In Ireland, CHIST-ERA projects are administered by the Irish Research Council.
