The Artificial Intelligence research group researches applications of AI and data-driven innovation. AI technology is developing rapidly and has an impact on many companies and governments. It is of social importance to steer this development in the right direction and to explore and, where necessary, record the limits of AI. People-oriented values such as transparency, trust, creativity and autonomy are central to this.

We study how systems can be designed so they can be maintained and expanded. The main focus is on the application and use of new technological developments, such as the cloud and blockchain. This line of research provides the architectural component for digital transformation.

We strive to arrange IT and organizations in such a way that changes to the IT landscape can be implemented quickly and efficiently. Within the context of digital transformation, this line of research therefore focuses more on the interaction between IT and professional practice.

We study the way companies and organizations deal with increasing amounts of data. An important aspect of the digital transformation is the responsible use of data and the use of data in artificial intelligence.

Students work in projects on innovative fraud detection and personalization applications.

“[…] it's the most efficient thing to do to allow algorithms to make decisions on behalf of human beings. […] And if this is more efficient, what happens to the ideals of freedom and human rights and individualism?”

Collaboration

The Artificial Intelligence research group works together with regulators and government organizations on the explainability of AI in the financial sector, with media parties on the responsible use of AI in the creative industry and with NEN and STT on the implementation of ethical and legislative frameworks in new AI products. We look forward to cooperate an collaborate with parties and are open to new research questions that can contribute to the human-centred application of AI.
