Tutor(s): Dr. Francesco Rea, Dr. Alessandra Sciutti, Dr. Stefano Bencetti; Prof. Nicoletta Noceti
In the field of cyber security the effectiveness of security measures to protect personal data is increasing, people remain susceptible to manipulation and thus the human element remains the weakest link: social engineering. The overall aim of the project is to investigate how to prevent disclosure of sensitive information applied to the areas where humans use interconnected technologies (e.g. robotics, IOT, Big Data Analytics systems) especially in the context of human machine interactions (e.g.: robot companion, assistive robotics, home assistance, etc.). The aim unfolds into two goals for the candidate. First, the ideal candidate is required to develop algorithms of human machine interaction relying on cutting-edge machine learning techniques that allow the artificial intelligence to adapt to the person. The second goal is to improve the robustness and high integrity of system architectures (cyber-physical security) relying also on computer vision and adopted for above-mentioned cutting-edge technologies. As outcome of the project, such methodologies will be concretely applied to innovative applications especially involving robotics technologies designed at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia to make the applications socially aware and socially acceptable.

Applicants are expected to have very good skills in at least two of the following areas: software development, computer vision, robot programming, machine learning. Furthermore, good attitude for experimental work is mandatory. The candidates must have: very good programming skills with different languages (including C/C++, Python, 6 Matlab/Simulink); be capable to conduct experiments; attitude to problem solving, and be strongly motivated for team working.
