The Department of Psychology at the University of York is seeking a Research Associate in the area of predicting and obviating human error in visual monitoring tasks. The project is focused on attempting to predict when a person is likely to commit an error whilst engaged in a mundane visual monitoring task. Aside from collecting simple key press responses, thermal imaging of facial skin temperature will also take place. The intention is to use such measures to predict the likelihood of committing an error on the monitoring task. Ultimately an aim is to use AI to learn to predict when an upcoming error is likely. If successful the intention is to explore effective means to obviate such errors.Role
The successful candidate will be primarily engaged with developing a variety of software to facilitate the design and running of the experiments and the processing of the data. In particular a key responsibility will be in the development of the AI to predict the likelihood of committing an error given the data from the experiments. This post is part of a DASA-funded project awarded to Dr Philip Quinlan.
