ICR (Individual and Collective Reasoning) is going to offer two PhD positions starting in 2019 September.

ICR is an interdisciplinary research team at the University of Luxembourg which is driven by the insight that intelligent systems (like humans) are characterized not only by their individual reasoning capacity but also by their social interaction potential. Its overarching goal is to develop and investigate comprehensive formal models and computational realizations of individual and collective reasoning and rationality.

ICR is anchored in the Computer Science and Communications unit (CSC) at the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication (FSTC). The group, which is led by Leon van der Torre, hosted more than 20 researchers in 2018 and is strongly engaged in international cooperation.

Our research areas include normative reasoning in multi-agent contexts, logics for intelligent agents/robots, legal knowledge representation and reasoning, formal/computational argumentation and defeasible reasoning with uncertain/inconsistent information, with applications to AI, Law, and the formal sciences. In 2018, ICR also started to develop Space AI, which will contribute to the UL priority of space education and research. The foci of the two PhD projects should be on 'Security and privacy of resource-constrained devices' and 'Risk analysis and regulatory compliance of distributed ledger technologies for transaction and management of securities'.
