Statistical inference and logic reasoning are becoming readily available for data processing pipelines in connected vehicles, traffic surveillance and the Web of Things. While statistical inference uses learning techniques for generating or grouping data points to classes or models under symbolic values, logic reasoning addresses the manipulation of symbolic values interlinked via logical axioms, e.g., knowledge graphs. The Department of Open Distributed Systems (ODS) is dedicated in combining these scientific to build distributed processing workflows, for example, combining computer vision tasks such as object detection, semantic segmentation image/visual/video scene understanding with knowledge graphs and logic reasoners.
Currently, we are looking for a scientist to work and research on exciting scientific questions around “Distributed Stream Reasoning”. The successful candidate will conduct research in an interesting and inspiring group.
The opportunity for PhD is given.
Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in computer science, applied mathematics, statistics, or similar subjects with excellent results
Very good language and writing skills in English
Good German language skills is an advantage
