Prof. Dr. Piek Vossen
I am a full Professor in Computational Lexicology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, leading a group of enthusiastic researchers studying natural language processing. My contribution to Hybrid Intelligence is to develop systems that can communicate about the shared world and each other in order to collaborate. I am fascinated by the way we make reference through language to a shared world that we may perceive differently. Machines and people need to learn to communicate about the real-world situations that they encounter.
Roles in Hybrid Intelligence: • PI, Executive Board, Research Line leader of Explainable HI, project leader in Collaborative HI
- 03.UL Mining texts for perspectives in human-machine deliberation, (with Catholijn Jonker)
