Michael Elected EurAI Fellow

Professor Michael Luck has been elected a 2020 EurAI Fellow by the EurAI Fellows committee.
The EurAI Fellows programme was created by the European Association for Artificial Intelligence in 1999, “to recognise individuals who have made significant, sustained contributions to the field of artificial intelligence (AI) in Europe." The EurAI Fellows Program honours only a very small percentage of the total membership of all EurAI member societies (up to a maximum of 3%).

Fully funded PhD studentships in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence

The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence, hosted by King's College London and Imperial College London, invites applications for fully funded PhD studentships, commencing in September 2020.

The Safe and Trusted AI CDT offers a unique four-year PhD programme, focussed on the use of symbolic AI techniques for ensuring the safety and trustworthiness of AI systems. Various training activities, alongside individual PhD projects, train students in state-of-the-art AI techniques and give them the opportunity to acquire a deep understanding of ethical, societal, and legal implications of AI in a research and industrial setting. Through engagement with the CDT’s diverse range of industrial partners, students will be exposed to the different experiences, challenges, and technical problems involved in both start-ups and large corporations.
