Toyota Research Institute

The Machine Assisted Cognition (MAC) group at Toyota Research Institute in Los Altos, CA is seeking HCI/AI and ML full-time researchers.

The MAC group is a new interdisciplinary team at Toyota Research Institute focused on enhancing human decision-making that spans behavioral science, machine learning, human-computer interaction, and causal inference. We integrate experimental results, behavioral theory, and machine learning methods to build predictive models of human behavior, and we develop tools to help people engage and interact with those models to make more informed predictions, judgments, and decisions.

The MAC group is hiring for full-time positions. We are explicitly seeking researchers interested in developing novel tools and techniques that can integrate predictions from AI systems to help people make decisions. Relevant backgrounds include explainable AI, conversational AI and UIs, human-AI teams, trustworthy machine learning (fairness, accountability, causality, etc.), and behavioral modeling.
