Updated: 27 days ago
Deadline: 13 Jun 2021

The Human-Technology Interaction Group (HTI) of the School of Innovation Sciences, in collaboration with the Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute (EAISI), is looking for

a PhD-student on human-AI collaboration in the workplace.

Are you interested in improving the way in which humans interact with AI-systems in organizations? Do you want to better understand how the strengths of smart AI-systems can best be combined with the strengths of human expertise?

Job Description

The Department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences (IE&IS) is a leading school in the area of industrial engineering and management science as well as innovation sciences. IE&IS has several BSc and MSc programs housed in two separate schools: Innovation Sciences (IS) and Industrial Engineering (IE). The School of Innovation Sciences focuses on the realization and impact of technological innovations at the individual, organizational, and societal level. The Human-Technology Interaction (HTI) group is part of the school of IS. It concentrates expertise in social sciences - particularly psychology - and engineering, studying technology in the service of human wellbeing within the broader context of a socially and ecologically sustainable society.

The Eindhoven AI Systems Institute (EAISI) combines all TU/e Artificial Intelligence activities. Top researchers from various research groups work together to create new and exciting AI methodologies and applications with a direct impact on the real world. TU/e has been active in the field of AI for many years, which gives the new institute an excellent starting position to build upon.

This PhD project is part of the AI PLANNER OF THE FUTURE program. This ambitious research program is hosted by the TU/e-based Department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences and is supported by the European Supply Chain Forum, Department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences, the Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute, and the Logistics Community Brabant. The program connects to the different communities, moonshots strategic agendas and the themes of each of these supporting partners. It combines 25 researchers, 10 PhD students and over 50 Bachelor and Master students, for the coming five years (2021-2026). This AI PLANNER OF THE FUTURE program considers the explicit intertwining of technical and human elements in the context of AI planning for supply chains and logistics, considering all relevant performance indicators (people, profit, and the planet).
