Internships in AI Safety and Reinforcement Learning

Applications ongoing but early application preferred

The Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford seeks interns to contribute to our work in the area of technical AI safety. Examples of this type of work include Cooperative Inverse Reinforcement Learning, Learning the Preferences of Ignorant, Inconsistent Agents, Learning the Preferences of Bounded Agents, and Safely Interruptible Agents. The internship will give the opportunity to work on a specific project. Interns at FHI have worked on software for Inverse Reinforcement Learning, on a framework for RL with a human teacher, and on RL agents that do active learning. You will also get the opportunity to live in Oxford – one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the UK.
