Columbia Program for Human-Guided Machine Adaptation in collaboration with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory

The DEVCOM Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is funding a pilot program at Columbia University, Directed by Professor Paul Sajda, to develop and evaluate new approaches for Human-Guided Machine Adaptation (HGMA).  One of the goals of the program is to bring together researchers who have deep knowledge in AI/ML/Robotics with those who have expertise in human cognition, social interaction and decision making. These multi-disciplinary research groups will develop new approaches to HGMA that combine our understanding of human intelligence and social interaction with the state-of-the art methods and theories of machine intelligence and adaption.  In addition to the innovative research coming from these multidisciplinary teams, the program looks to train next generation investigators to understand both the human element and the machine/AI element as they relate to development of  human-machine teaming.

Research Fellowships for PhD Students and Postdocs in Columbia Engineering

SEAS Faculty are invited to nominate a PhD student or Postdoctoral Fellow to be part of the Columbia program for human-guided machine adaptation in collaboration with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. Students and Fellows will be fully supported by the Program (salary and tuition).  Appointments to the Program are for 1 year, with the potential for renewal given satisfactory progress and the availability of funds.  Students/Fellows are not obligated to work for the US Army or Gov’t, though there may be opportunities for internships and employment if there is mutual interest.
