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.

    CLAIRE 

    An initiative I support as Europe needs to play a key role in shaping how AI changes the world, and, of course, benefit from the results of AI research. The reason is obvious: AI is crucial for meeting Europe’s needs to address complex challenges as well as for positioning Europe and its nations in the global market.

    CLAIRE was initiated by Holger Hoos, professor in Machine Learning at Universiteit Leiden, Morten Irgens, Vice Rector at Oslo Metropolitan University, and Philipp Slusallek, Scientific Director at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence.
