Our lab is located at the Dept. of Computer Science, and it is part of the OsloMet AI Lab.
- Two PhD positions in the DeepCA project - Hybrid Deep Learning Cellular Automata Reservoir.
Three MSCA IF post-doc positions in Artificial Life, Artificial Intelligence, and ALife art.. Two PhD positions in the Socrates project – Self-Organising Computational Substrates. One year fully funded research position in Applied Computer Vision.
- We accept visiting researchers. Send an email to email@example.com.
- We mentor students on research projects, bachelor and master thesis at the intersection of living technology, artificial life, artificial intelligence, robotics, computational neuroscience and art. We expect to produce some sort of tangible results by the end of the mentorship period, for example a research paper, a poster, or a demo/presentation of the project. Interested? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
