Two postdoctoral positions on interpretable vector space models, Cardiff (Wales)

Deadline: Sunday 10 December 2017

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral research posts at Cardiff University's School of Computer Science & Informatics in the context of the ERC funded project FLEXILOG. The overall aims of this project are (i) to learn interpretable vector space embeddings (or conceptual spaces) from a variety of structured and unstructured information sources, and (ii) to exploit these embeddings for improving statistical and symbolic inference from imperfect data.

Start date: 1 January 2018 (or as soon as possible thereafter). Successful candidates are expected to have excellent programming skills, as well as a strong background in natural language processing, machine learning, or knowledge representation. Keywords: Knowledge graphs, conceptual spaces, vector space embeddings, statistical learning, neural networks.
