The Érasme doctoral school of the Sorbonne Paris Nord University is inviting applications for a PhD project on “Artificial intelligence devices and algorithmic data processing in culture: industrialization and regulation”.
The present call for a doctoral contract focuses on the theme of artificial intelligence (AI) devices and algorithmic data processing in culture. The thesis can be written either in French or in English and will be conducted within the Laboratory of Information and Communication Sciences (LabSIC).
Considering the deployment of AI devices and the algorithmic processing of data from the point of view of industrializing culture is at the heart of the work carried out within Section 1 of the Laboratory of information and communication sciences (LabSIC): “Cultural, educational and creative industries”. Specifically, this subject refers to the strategic orientation of digital platforms, since AI devices and algorithmic data processing present platforms with major challenges. Given the above, LabSIC and the Laboratory of Excellence “Cultural Industries and Artistic Creation” (Labex ICCA) have been the first to conduct various research projects from the perspective of Big Data (Thuillas and Wiart, 2019; Ithurbide, 2019; Bouquillion, 2019) and algorithms (Chevret-Castellani and Labelle, 2019, 2020, 2021; Bénistant, Chevret-Castellani and Labelle, to be published in 2022).
In order to extend this research, LabSIC is proposing that the Sorbonne Paris Nord University offer a doctoral contract on the challenges of AI devices and the algorithmic processing of data in culture. The doctoral thesis will be supervised within LabSIC by Philippe Bouquillion, whose work focuses on the cultural and creative industries, and Christine Chevret-Castellani, whose research addresses public policies and digital regulation.
Candidates are invited to contact Philippe Bouquillion (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Christine Chevret-Castellani (email@example.com); final applications must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12.00 p.m. on May 16.
