NeuronReduce

Type of Position: Research Fellowship (Bolsa de Investigação)

Type of Contract: Research grant

Duration: 5 Months

Limit to reply: 2021-Apr-20

Description
The fellowship recipient will join a team of experienced researchers in a project whose goal is to apply model reduction techniques to the problem of simulating large networks of realistic neuron models.  In particular the fellowship recipient is expected to be heavily involved with two of the project's tasks. 
The goals of these tasks include the following:
- to develop what are known as gray or black-box modeling strategies based on machine learning techniques. Such techniques do not assume structural knowledge of the modeled systems to be available or explored, and instead work with generic internal information as well as input output behavior obtained from an executable representation of the system
- to develop and analyse different automatic timestep control mechanisms for managing the time-domain simulation of such systems; such mechanisms must take advantage of the known or observable dynamics of the system and be based on variable timestep control algorithms

LAW-NLP

Type of Position: Research Fellowship (Bolsa de Investigação)

Type of Contract: Research grant

Duration: 8 Months

Limit to reply: 2021-Apr-20

Description
LAW-NLP aims to explore the use of natural language processing to help users understand and identify relevant Portuguese consumer laws that apply to their situation. To that end, the applicant will explore the use of semantic analysis (such as semantic role labelling), to enrich the Portuguese Consumer Law with a semantic representation, and further use this data to train Question-Answering Models and/or Chatbots.

SLICE

Type of Position: Research Fellowship (Bolsa de Investigação)

Type of Contract: Research grant

Duration: 5 Months

Limit to reply: 2021-Apr-23

Description
The candidate will work on the project SLICE, which aims to develop and validate an authoring-friendly framework for the creation of transparent social intelligent agents capable of being deployed as virtual characters in training simulations or games or used to drive the behaviour of social robots. This framework joins two until now disparate areas of artificial intelligence research, namely, social agent architectures and machine learning. In particular, the candidate will work on the Model and Dialog System components.

PassCert: Exploring the Impact of Formal Verification on the Adoption of Password Security Software
PassCert: Investigação do Impacto de Verificação Formal na Adopção de Software para Segurança de Passwords

Type of Position: Research Fellowship (Bolsa de Investigação)

Type of Contract: Research grant

Duration: 6 Months

Limit to reply: 2021-May-05

Description
The selected candidate will be a member of the research project PassCert, which aims at building an open-source, proof-of-concept password manager that through the use of formal verification, is guaranteed to satisfy properties on data storage and password generation. PassCert is a research collaboration between researchers from INESC-ID Lisboa (PT), INESC TEC (PT), and Carnegie Mellon University (US).

The selected candidate will:

1) Contribute to the development of the proof-of-concept verified password manager.

2) Explore ways in which the data security of the password manager can improve.

3) Investigate ways of formally verifying the data security properties identified.

4) Actively participate in and contribute to PassCert's activities and regular meetings.
