Researcher positions on machine learning and algorithmic aspects in a Human-Centric Data Economy

The modern digital economy relies on data as its main resource. With the resurgence of deep neural networks, at the beginning of the decade, a vast array of applications have fuelled economic growth as well as new business models. This project will focus on contemporary problems of machine learning such as model interpretation and feature importance, among others. The interested applicants will work as part of a team with a diverse range of skills, on setting the foundation of a new human-centric data economy, where users become active participants in the value flow, and are remunerated for their efforts.
