EDUCATION

My primary education expertise is cognitive information processing in biological and artificial systems. The most important topics in cognitive information processing are too complex to be understood in a mono-disciplinary manner.

 

In all courses I teach, I therefore place a great deal of emphasis on integrating theoretical insight from psychology, neuroscience and informatics, and on practical exercises across the traditional boundaries between these fields.

 

Drawing upon my own academic experience in information systems, medical imaging, computer vision and computational neuroscience, I aim at teaching my bachelor and master students  integrative views and skills in cognitive information processing.

In this In My My Humble Opinion (IHMO) video,  publsihed by Mindshakes in April 2016, I explain how artificial intelligence can serve as a mirror for (unconscious) human behavior and what artificial intelligence can teach humans about (solving) social discrimination.
