Applications are invited for a Research Associate in Security for AI, working in the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh. This post is part of the AISEC project, a UKRI funded research project on Security for Artificial Intelligence running from September 2020 to 31st May 2024 at the Universities of Heriot-Watt, Edinburgh and Strathclyde.
The AISEC project aims to design and implement a methodology and development environment for “policy-to-property” verification of complex AI systems which are secure and explainable by construction. The project is using lightweight verification methods to help document, implement and refine policies for complex deep learning and rules-based systems. The project is examining two key AI application areas: autonomous vehicles and natural language interfaces and it includes collaboration with legal researchers and industrial partners in each application area. The security strand of the project is investigating ways of specifying suitable security policies and their interaction with safety.
