Senior Software Engineer - India

--Alien Technology Transfer Ltd--

Alien Venture Studio designs, funds and launches innovative companies through the timely transformation of high-potential concepts into profitable ventures. We nurture companies throughout their entire journey, from inception to seed and early funding rounds, ultimately guiding them in the direction of the successful commercialisation of their products and business growth.

Are You ready to experience working for a young, dynamic rapidly growing technology transfer company?

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our young, dynamic, and growing venture studio.

In this position, you will collaborate with international R&D institutes to build AI that has a human-like ability to focus its computational resources and intelligently control that focus and interact with people in a socially competent manner. The main project involves an integrative approach to awareness engineering to establish consciousness in machines. The ideal candidate should have a passion for artificial (general) intelligence, machine learning, reinforcement learning, NLP, and explainable AI.

Project Description


Budget: 3.3 Million €

In the last decade, deep learning algorithms have enabled AI systems to perform a series of tasks, like speech and image recognition, as well as or better than humans. However, this technology is not going to be enough to deliver human-level intelligence without

consciousness. Without understanding the subjective awareness element, it may be impossible to build AI that has a human-like ability to focus its computational resources and intelligently control that focus and interact with people in a socially competent

manner. Our project proposes an Integrative Approach For Awareness Engineering to establish consciousness in machines.

Our project will provide insights into consciousness that are concrete enough, and mechanistic enough, that engineers can build upon it to facilitate future technologies. The study has the potential to be a toolbox for the construction of an EIC Portfolio in conscious AI.
