The studentship will provide a stipend at UKRI rates (currently £17,668 for 2022/23) and tuition fees for 3.5 years. An additional bursary of £1,700 per annum for the duration of the studentship will be offered to exceptional candidates.
The Centre for Doctoral Training in People-Centred AI supports interdisciplinary AI research from fundamental theory through to practical application led by research groups across our network of staff.
AI-based machines and systems are performing tasks across an ever-increasing variety of fields, often faster and at a fraction of the cost of their human competition. Far from being limited to manual labour, today’s machines are diagnosing disease, keeping us safe both online and in the physical world, practicing law, and even creating art. Intelligent automation is the future – the economics are too compelling for any other outcome – and the role of research is to capitalise on the myriad opportunities AI offers, to predict and solve challenges along the way, and to ensure future AI systems are fair and explainable.
The University of Surrey leads on both the fundamental artificial intelligence theory – pioneering new machine learning algorithms and the understanding of black box AI systems – and the application of AI for the benefit of society through healthcare, security, education and entertainment.
