Vision

I have the best job in the world: research topics that interest me and teach interested people. I enjoy working in interdisciplinary teams and creating synergy between humans and technology by understanding, shaping and using fundamentals of intelligence and interaction. I am inspired by social intelligence theories, natural forms of intelligence and use concepts such as social practice to improve the interactive intelligence of agents.

Delft University of Technology has been my work base since 2006. It is a great university that breaths technology and provides me with fantastic colleagues. I love working at TUDelft and especially with the group Interactive Intelligence.

Universiteit Leiden has employed me as a part-time professor since 2017 at the Leiden Institute for Advanced Computer Science LIACS. It is a great university that is fond of technology but is also famous for its other scientific disciplines. Leiden University offers me an opportunity to connect to those other disciplines in a way that is not possible at TU Delft.

    Steeds meer professionals, zoals artsen en rechters, laten zich bij hun besluitvorming bijstaan door IT-systemen die gebruik maken van Big Data en zelflerende algoritmes. Hierbij is het vaak om commerciële of technische redenen niet mogelijk om te achterhalen hoe een advies tot stand is gekomen. De ethische implicaties hiervan zijn verstrekkend en potentieel maatschappij-ontwrichtend.
