PhD Student AI - Safeguarding of Automotive Computing (m/f/diverse) (Job ID: 226679BR)
We are searching for a research scientist (m/f/diverse) to join our artificial intelligence (AI) team in Berlin. As part of the central pre-development department, our goal is to develop and enable the use of AI in future Continental products. You will work in an innovative team of specialists and students with the goal of a Ph.D. In this thesis you are going to develop a method for evaluation of high performance hardware accelerators (e.g. neuromorphic) for advanced functions of artificial intelligence in modern, server-oriented E/E architectures. For this purpose, you will use benchmarks for evaluating complex representative workload from practical applications. Part of the thesis is to provide an exemplary safety argumentation for an AI component on system, software, and hardware level. This includes an assessment of possible reasoning approaches, collection of AI-specific safety concerns, derivation of safety requirements, development of detailed argumentation trees, and propositions for all requirements and assignment of methods of proof. Risk mitigation and management
Examine applicable measures that can be seen as a safe frame for AI Develop a monitoring function with safety limiter and mechanism for failure detection Incorporate redundance and diversity procedures (using data, model, hardware, etc.) Analyze the effectiveness and use of the developed system
Working in the AI Campus in Berlin means being part of a highly motivated and growing team of researchers working in the field of artificial intelligence. Being located in one of the German centers for AI, we strive to work on the frontier of research by having open exchange with experts and highly influential players in the community. Frequent talks, gatherings, and discussions as well as formal and informal team events ensure prompt spread of information. In our freshly established team of mostly Ph.D. students, we are maintaining an harmonious atmosphere of easy-going collaboration and exchange.
