My lab is currently seeking a PhD student in the areas of cognitive robots
and/or machine learning with a Canadian NSERC discovery grant. The Lab for
Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing is a part of the
International Institute of Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing
(ICIC), as well as Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the
University of Calgary, Canada.
A cognitive robot (CR) is an autonomous robot that is capable of
inference, perception, and learning based on the three-level abstract
intelligence known as the imperative, autonomic, and cognitive
intelligence. The studies will be focused on what the necessary and
sufficient intelligent behaviors of CRs are, and what distinguish the
intelligent capabilities of CRs from their imperative counterparts. The CR
will be powered by a cognitive learning engine based on concept algebra.
The candidate is expected to have an MSc in computational intelligence,
mathematics, and/or formal methods. Computational and software simulation
skills of abstract intelligence, and experience in cognitive linguistics
and machine learning will be excellent merits. Details of the research
areas can be found at the International Institute of Cognitive Informatics
and Cognitive Computing (ICIC, http://www.ucalgary.ca/icic/).
Prospective candidates please send an email of interest, a CV, and one or
a couple of related publications to [email protected] or [email protected]
(where I am currently on sabbatical) for consideration. Preferred
commencement date is Jan. 1, 2013, while a later date may be considered.
