Empowering job seekers with effective self-representation
A significant portion of academic graduates have difficulty finding a first job after graduation. On the one hand, job seekers are often not able to communicate their skills and abilities in a convincing manner. On the other hand, employers are often not able to communicate the job requirements effectively. In his MSc graduation project, Jeroen ter Haar Romenij (faculty of Industrial Design Engineering) designed a job searching platform that allows job seekers to explore vacancies based on job tasks. This enables them and employers to express their preferences in a uniform language, thereby reducing the communication gap and facilitating better matches.

Public lecture on Meaningful Human Control
29 August 2019
AiTech Symposium - Registration is now open!
How can humans stay in control over artificial intelligence and autonomous systems? How can we design and engineer systems that support societal values? The rapid development of AI brings benefits, but also creates ethical and socio-economic challenges. Now is the time to define how we want intelligent technologies to advance human well-being, without compromising our moral and social values. You are kindly invited to the 1st AiTech Symposium to discuss how we can achieve and maintain meaningful human control over autonomous systems.
