Postdoctoral Researcher in Automatic Speech Recognition

Updated: 3 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 16 Jul 2021

As a postdoctoral researcher, you will work on the NWO InDeep project on the interpretability of deep learning in the context of speech recognition models. The work will take place at Radboud University and Tilburg University, and may involve collaboration with industrial partners. Your main task will be to compile a scientific framework based on psycholinguistic/computational models of speech recognition and use this framework to interpret deep learning models, for example, by investigating if the units identified can help assess and improve automated speech recognition.

More generally, your research aims to further strengthen the relation between speech research and the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and supports understanding of how humanities knowledge can play a role in AI, by investigating, for example, algorithmic biases and algorithmic predictions contradicting human logic. In addition, you will assist in the coordination of the InDeep consortium.
