**Place of work**DataVis lab, ENAC, Toulouse France.

**Starting date**February 2021

The Post-Doctoral or Engineer or fellowship will take part in the 
ENAC/MDH/DBLUE/SAPIENZA joint project *ARTIMATION**, funded by the 

Recently, Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms have shown increasable 
interest in various application domains including in Air Transportation 
Management (ATM). Different AI in particular Machine Learning (ML) 
algorithms are used to provide decision support in autonomous 
decision-making tasks in the ATM domain e.g. predicting air 
transportation traffic and optimizing traffic flows. However, most of 
the time these automated systems are not accepted or trusted by the 
intended users as the decisions provided by AI are often opaque, 
non-intuitive and not understandable by human operators. Safety is the 
major pillar to air traffic management, and no black box process can be 
inserted in a decision-making process when human life is involved. In 
order to address this challenge related to transparency of the automated 
system in the ATM domain, ARTIMATION focuses on investigating AI methods 
in predicting air transportation traffic and optimizing traffic flows 
based on the domain of Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI). Here, 
AI models’ explainability in terms of understanding a decision i.e., 
post hoc interpretability and understanding how the model works i.e., 
transparency can be provided in the air traffic management. In 
predicting air transportation traffic and optimizing traffic flows 
systems, ARTIMATION will provide a proof-of- concept of transparent AI 
models that includes visualization, explanation, generalization with 
adaptability over time to ensure safe and reliable decisionsupport.
