Vito Trianni

Apologies for multiple posting

A postdoc position is available within the context of the European project HACID (http://www.hacid-project.eu), at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the Italian National Research Council)

HACID aims at the study of hybrid human-artificial collective intelligence for open-ended domains like medical diagnostics and decision support for climate change adaptation policies.
Thanks to well designed knowledge graphs and information aggregation algorithms, the project aims at improving decision making in situations where knowledge fragmentation and information overload can strike.

Related to the open position, the research program consists in the development of a dashboard for visualization and interaction with knowledge graphs in the context of both medical diagnostics and climate services. The dashboard will have to enable the selection by domain experts of concepts relevant to the case study, presenting these concepts in a dynamic and usable way. The activities include the experimental validation of the dashboard to test its usability and consistency, in interaction with the HACID team for the different case studies.

The following skills are requested:
• Knowledge of User Experience (UX) methodologies and human-machine interaction;
• Experience in (i) data visualisation and (ii) design and implementation of user interfaces, also with open-source libraries and frameworks for the creation of interactive dashboards (e.g. D3, Kibana, Tableau, etc.);
• Experience in the use of the required programming languages: Python, Java;

Deadline for applications is December 5th 2022.
