Hi all,

We are looking for candidates for the position, Postdoc in Interactive AI for Interdisciplinary Artistic Practices at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. The deadline for applications is May 1st, 2023.
We are excited to share this position as a part of a new research group that I am initiating within my WASP-HS project. The focus of this Post-doctoral Fellowship is researching and understanding interactivity in the applications of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in interdisciplinary art and technology practices. The position responsibilities include research and development of novel interactive systems using machine learning and artificial intelligence for artistic applications such as live performances, artwork installations, tools for artistic practices etc. The research methodologies cover exciting approaches such as research through design, soma design, and post-phenomenology. The research perspective takes a multidisciplinary position to pursue discussions in aesthetics, ethics, and societal aspects of Artificial Intelligence. The candidate is expected to work closely with the current research group members while actively engaging with the development and establishment of the new research group.

We encourage candidates with a background in interdisciplinary Art and Technology topics, such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, evolutionary computation, computational creativity, co-creativity and augmented creativity with machines, embodied performance with technology, robotics, bio-art, music technology, sound synthesis, live coding, new interfaces for musical expression, musical performance, musical improvisation, virtual reality, augmented/extended reality, music-dance practices, cognitive science, cognitive and psychological computational models, human-computer interaction, soma-design, somaesthetics, etc.

This postdoc position is a full-time temporary employment for three years, and the expected start date is September 1st, 2023.

We are looking forward to receiving your applications. The full details of this position and the link to the application portal can be found at the official call page:

to Magenta Discuss,

I have no formal education but have proclivities to AI basics.

Would you know of any groups who are building a "live SDK" similar to your interactive concepts whereby an exchange of ideas about AI (becuz of the iterative nature of AI) is cogently "got" or intuited by a group of hungry enthusiasts?

I believe we need a system where "squares" are encouraged to be moved around and because of where they occur in a logical sequence, "suggestions" are offered by the hybrid of human input and AI together.

Slap shades of colors representing something integral about the selected "square" and maybe also a Wordpress-like avatar/logo system like what has suggested.

THEN I believe with a fun "hacker mentality", ideas can be exchanged in quantity and quality enough for "fun" to be elicited from this process.

Creativity loves speed.

So does AI.
