The Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute (EAISI, pronounced ‘easy’) is meant to meet the rapidly growing demand for courses, engineers, and expertise in the field of AI. Our university offers an outstanding position as Scientific Director of EAISI. Do you have what it takes to make our EASI center a world-recognized institution and are you willing to collaborate with different scientific institutes and industry? Then apply now!
The Eindhoven Artificial Intelligent Systems Institute seeks to facilitate, bring together, stimulate, and amplify AI research at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), with a focus on AI for the real world. For EAISI this means AI systems in engineering practice, addressing societal challenges with responsible, human centered technology. EAISI pursues university-industry collaborations and represents TU/e in national and international discussions in order to establish an AI roadmap.
EAISI was established in the spring of 2019 as a cross-departmental institute. It has a staff consisting of a (strategic) management team, a team focusing on (inter)national positioning, and a scientific team. It builds on the strengths of AI research in the Data Science Center and the High-tech Systems Center and on ongoing collaborations among TU/e researchers. EAISI is looking to fill the position of Scientific Director who is encouraged to lead EAISI in developing and implementing a long-term scientific roadmap on Engineering AI systems in the application domains of Health, High-Tech Systems, and Mobility, which represent TU/e strengths.
Artificial Intelligence already plays a meaningful role at the TU/e. Every day, some 100 scientists in Eindhoven are busy developing new knowledge and smart applications of this promising technology. They create prize-winning soccer robots, human-friendly drones for the healthcare sector, 3D computer vision systems for autonomous cars, methods for medical image analysis based on deep learning, and smart applications of data from health apps.
Therefore, the university has decided to invest in AI research and education. EAISI has had an outstanding start and significant impact in the national discussion already. The task now is to shape the institute further. In more detail, the following challenges are ahead, characterized by the keywords: multi-disciplinary, collaboration, and impact.
EAISI has the aspiration to build intelligent machines that benefit society at large. The new institute will therefore put the moral and ethical aspects of AI at the center of its work. This implies that the machines we make are unbiased, have an understanding for human wants and needs and are transparent and credible about their goals and values.
Eindhoven University of Technology is a top-ranking Dutch university that combines scientific curiosity with a hands-on attitude. Our spirit of collaboration translates into an open culture and a strong background in collaborating with advanced industries. Fundamental knowledge enables us to design solutions for the highly complex problems of today and tomorrow.
