Our mission is to understand and engineer human-agent collaboration. We develop theories, models and methods of interactive intelligence by combining intelligent agent technology, cognitive engineering, psychology, affective computing, value sensitive design and human computer interaction.

Van Leeuwenhoek lecture on Intimate Technology
Intimate technology such as quantified self, mobile apps to share location, social media, high-tech clothing and behavior-supporting technology such as smart homes are getting "closer" in our daily lives. These digital technologies have many (potential) advantages, for example for improving our health, efficiency, safety and connection with other people.

One of the biggest promises in the development of technology is artificial intelligence (AI). It seems far away, but there is a big chance that you use it more often in everyday life than you think. Searching in Google, talking to Siri on your iPhone or watching tips on Netflix are all forms of artificial intelligence. Interpreting data, recognizing patterns and matching data are the basis for this.
