About the project

The global artificial intelligence (AI) market is valued at over $387.4 billion and is projected to more than triple by 2029. For the world to realise the benefits brought by AI, it is important to ensure AI systems are responsibly developed, used throughout their entire life cycle, and trusted by the humans expected to rely on them.

This PhD studentship is in the broad area of responsible and trustworthy AI. Potential research topics include:

  • multi-robot systems 
  • autonomous systems
  • multi-agent systems
  • goal-driven systems
  • recognition, human-computer interaction 

Modern AI technologies have great potential to advance our society. With this power comes great responsibility to ensure AI is used for good and in an equitable, transparent manner. AI has a significant impact, and ensuring that AI is designed, deployed, and used responsibly is critical to ensuring its impact is positive. 

The PhD studentship is related to our flagship £31M Responsible AI UK programme (RAI UK). This national centre, based at the University of Southampton, will create an international ecosystem for responsible AI research and innovation.
