Position description

We are now looking for two research engineers for the project CPMXai - Cognitive Predictive Maintenance and Quality Assurance using Explainable Ai and Machine Learning.

CPMXai aims to develop a digital twin for cognitive predictive maintenance through automatic data labelling, AI/ML and Explainable AI (XAI) to reduce undesirable situations and improve maintenance in manufacturing and production processes. CPMXai has 3 objectives - to identify use cases in the industries, to develop a new automatic data labelling tool using digital twin and finally to develop a self-monitoring, self-learning, self-explainable prediction system.

CPMXai is a Production 2030 project funded by Vinnova consisting of 8 different partners including 5 industries in Sweden.

As a research engineer, you will focus on a variety of tasks to develop predictive models for cognitive predictive maintenance of industrial use cases. You will work on data analysis, hands-on development and testing of machine learning (ML) models, which includes data processing to ensure data quality, developing methods for automatic data annotation, implementing ML and XAI algorithms as well as visualising the results for demonstration purposes.

Qualification requirements

The applicant is required to have a bachelor's or master's level degree in Computer Science or equivalent. You have knowledge in data analysis, artificial intelligence, and machine learning algorithms. The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English.
