Knowledge Representation for Artificial Agents
The Honda Research Institute Europe works at the cutting edge of scientific research in artificial intelligence, robotics and intelligent systems.
Our vision is a society in which humans, intelligent cyber-physical systems and nature advance and support each other. The successful cooperation between humans, robots, and intelligent systems is key to a prospering society.
We are looking for highly motivated and talented researchers who share our spirit of turning pioneering scientific research into groundbreaking innovations. If you want to contribute your ideas to making this reality, join us in our institute in Offenbach am Main, Germany.
Current AI technology excels at a broad range of specific tasks like image classification or language processing. To the contrary, abilities as required during daily human interaction and for human common-sense reasoning pose serious challenges for AI systems.
At HRI-EU, we research methods to build a Knowledge Engine to provide AI systems with broader cognitive abilities. Based on hybrid approaches including knowledge graphs, automatic knowledge extraction and machine learning, our target is to create a scalable, growing Knowledge Engine for AI systems that support human beings.
You will be part of an interdisciplinary research team that helps make this vision a reality.
