Continental PhD Student for Knowledge Represenation (m/f/diverse) in Berlin, Germany

PhD Student for Knowledge Represenation (m/f/diverse)



Job Description

As part of the central advance development for artificial intelligence, we are responsible for the development of innovative technologies to enable the application of AI for our products. You will work in a dedicated, innovative team consisting of Continental employees and students prepare a research thesis with the aim of obtaining a doctorate.

Topic: Algorithms for robust knowledge representation learning

Autonomous Driving requires world and expert knowledge to ensure a safe and comfortable driving experience. Concrete examples are road traffic rules or specific road knowledge for maneuver planning. Your goal is to develop algorithms that embed symbolic knowledge (e.g. logical rules) into subsymbolic representations, i.e. embeddings. The evaluation of existing and the development of new approaches are essential to effectively integrate knowledge representations into autonomous driving components.

A second thesis will deal with the planning of possible and probable future evolution of an entire traffic scene. The respective models should leverage the normative domain knowledge modeled in this work. A close collaboration between these two topics is expected.

The work is part of the publicly funded research project “KI-Wissen”.
