I am a PhD candidate at the Creative Intelligence Lab who tries to improve communication between humans and Artificial Intelligence by co-creating shared vocabularies. Tom Kouwenhoven is a member of the interdisciplinary research programme Society, Artificial Intelligence and Life Sciences (SAILS).
My work is situated between Artificial Intelligence, Language evolution, and Cognitive psychology. I take inspiration from the field of Language Evolution and try to combine it with my background in AI to create adaptive machine learning algorithms which facilitate natural interactions between humans and machines. With this project, I aim to develop methods that result in mutual understanding about words and their corresponding meanings such that both, humans, and computers better understand each other.
