About this scholarship

This exciting PhD studentship is funded and jointly supervised by CSIRO and Curtin. The project will focus on collaborative intelligence, which involves humans and Artificial Intelligence (Al) working interdependently towards a shared goal. Advances in the field of Al mean that collaborative work will be possible that maximises the strengths of humans and Al to achieve higher performance than either can achieve alone. This PhD will identify the contexts within which collaborative Al is likely to be required, explore what skills workers will need to work collaboratively with AI, and will help to identify strategies to support the development of these skills.
