The Department of ICT has several large and active research groups in Information and Communication Technology including 12 Professors, 15 Associate Professors, 10 Assistant professors and about 15 Research Fellows on the PhD programme in ICT. The department has successfully led a number of large research projects funded by the Research Council of Norway; the EU research programmes FP7 and H2020, as well as national and international industries. Within these strategic research areas, CAIR researchers head or contribute to a number of research projects, funded by the Research Council of Norway and EU research programmes. The responsibilities of the open professor position include: a) research and PhD/master's student supervision in the area of machine learning, and b) teaching on artificial intelligence (theory, algorithms and implementation) at the master's and PhD level.
Since then, many more programs have been developed to expand the range of opportunities for global education, including student and teacher travel, global curriculum, programs to support teachers, and programs that deploy internet-based communication technologies to facilitate teacher and student global collaboration such as iEarn, the Global Scholars program at Bloomberg Philanthropies or the Out of Eden Project at Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The Asia Society has developed excellent materials to support curriculum development, teacher preparation and collective leadership on global education. Organizations like the Peace Corps or World Teach provide college graduates opportunities to develop their global skills through global service.
