Tilburg University – Department of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence
The Cognitive Science & Artificial Intelligence (CS&AI) department conducts research in the field of cognitive psychology, computational linguistics, computer science, data science and artificial intelligence. The department excels in explainable AI and hybrid intelligence. Rather than finding a strict computational solution to societal problems, we aim to find a solution that includes a through understanding of the (cognitive) mechanisms. The department hosts both Bachelor and Master programs in data science and cognitive science and artificial intelligence, now having one of the largest artificial intelligence programs nationally. Because of its interdisciplinary nature, the department has played a significant role in the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS) in ‘s-Hertogenbosch (collaboration with Eindhoven University of Technology) and MindLabs (collaboration with Fontys University of Applied Science, ROC Tilburg, Breda University of Applied Sciences and corporate partners. MindLabs is home to where human ad artificial minds meet. ViBE is a perfect setting for this line of research, as it brings together virtual conversational agents and their human users.
