  • (New) Postdoctoral researchers in University Research Priority Area Humane AI

    The University of Amsterdam’s interdisciplinary Research Priority Area Humane AI is looking for 3 postdoctoral researchers in the areas of law, social sciences and humanities. The overarching goal of these positions is to develop insights and principles for responsible and human-centric AI from a Social Science-Humanities (SSH) perspective: How can SSH research contribute to responsible AI, e.g. in sectors like media, culture/language or justice; what are the contextual socio-economic circumstances that need to be fulfilled for really responsible AI?; what is irresponsible AI? What is the role of human behaviour, law and ethics in creating the framework conditions for responsible AI?
