The spec­trum of avail­able topics ran­ges from core areas of com­pu­ter sci­ence and elec­tro­nics over medi­cal app­li­ca­ti­ons to socie­tal aspects of AI. SECAI’s main rese­arch focus areas are:
  • Com­po­site AI: How can machine lear­ning and sym­bo­lic AI methods be com­bi­ned?
  • AI Com­pute Para­digms: How will future AI hard­ware look and how will it be used?
  • Intel­li­gent Medi­cal Devices: How can AI advance cyber­me­di­cal sys­tems?
  • AI Methods for Health: How can AI methods sup­port the­rapy and dia­gnos­tis?
  • Socie­tal Frame­work of AI: How can AI become trust­worthy and free of legal risks?
The loca­tion of work (Dres­den or Leip­zig) depends on the topic assi­gned for each posi­tion. Infor­ma­tion about the avail­able topics and super­vi­sors can be found at

You deve­lop your own rese­arch pro­file, publish and pre­sent your fin­dings are inter­na­tio­nal venues, and net­work with the inter­na­tio­nal rese­arch com­mu­nity.

Oppor­tu­nities: SECAI offers a first-class envi­ron­ment for advan­cing your career. You can work with inter­na­tio­nally renow­ned rese­ar­chers and bene­fit from the school’s strong net­works in indus­try and rese­arch.
