PhD position: Psychologically validated digital twins of human decision-making in urban mobility
Deadline: May 31st
Digital twins of urban mobility are widely used to understand and predict traffic flow in and through cities. The PhD research project will investigate how individual differences in decision-making can be modeled in digital twins of urban mobility (e.g., cars, pedestrians, cyclists, and public transportation in different urban settings) in a validated, more psychologically plausible way. The project offers an exciting opportunity for interdisciplinary research at the intersection of AI, Cognitive Science, Geosciences, and Computer Science. Moreover, there is active collaboration between Utrecht University, the research institute TNO, crowd simulation company uCrowds, and the municipality of Utrecht. Supervision is by Dr. Chris Janssen, Dr. Leendert van Maanen, Dr. Bas Spierings, Dr. Roland Geraerts, and Dr. Taoufik Bakri (TNO The Hague). The project is funded through the Utrecht AI Labs and TNO.
