Researcher, School of Computer Science/CeADAR job with UNIVERSITY COLLEGE DUBLIN (UCD)
Applications are invited for a Temporary post of a Researcher at UCD in UCD School of Computing / CeADAR Center for Applied AI
TRANSPIRE (Trained AI Platform for Regulation) combines human expertise with artificial intelligence to automatically monitor, interpret and demystify laws and regulations across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions. This then enables companies to assess risk and deliver effective regulatory outcomes while protecting consumers. You will join a team conducting innovative research on machine learning and natural language processing for legal and regulatory texts.
The key research axis of the project concerns the analysis, classification and extraction of knowledge for these texts in a transparent way. As such, a key priority will be a body of research on explainable and/or interpretable models for the analysis of legal texts. The project is funded under the Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund (DTIF) and will be carried out in collaboration with two industrial partners: Corlytics and Version 1. As such, a key feature of the project is to work closely with experts in the field that will both inform research and bring domain expertise to model training.
You will join the research team at CeADAR: Irish Center for Applied AI. CeADAR’s market-oriented program is developed in conjunction with its strong membership base of 90 multinationals and SMEs. CeADAR is based at UCD and is a collaboration between UCD and Dublin University of Technology. The inter-institutional team undertakes applied and translational research in a wide range of data analytics and AI and works closely with the industrial members of the Centre.
The purpose of the role is to carry out a specific research project. The role gives the Research Fellow the professional development opportunity to demonstrate the ability for independent, self-directed research and scholarship and the management of a research team. The role enables the Fellow to build a portfolio of independent achievement and to make themselves competitive for tenured academic positions or senior scientific positions in industry.
