Luciano Cavalcante Siebert

Luciano Cavalcante Siebert is an assistant professor at the Interactive Intelligence Group, Delft University of Technology, where he focuses on Responsible Artificial Intelligence. He studied Mechatronics at PUCPR (B.Sc.) and did his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering at the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), Brazil. During his Ph.D. he also acted as a guest researcher at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Prior to his current position, Luciano was a postdoc at TU Delft’s AiTech initiative. Luciano has +8 years of experience in research on developing and applying intelligent techniques to robotics, machine learning, optimization, and automation.

Luciano’s interdisciplinary research focuses on the development of practical methods to keep AI under meaningful human control. He develops hybrid AI methods that combine machine learning and symbolic approaches, incorporating ethical and human behavior theories to AI. Considering AI agents within sociotechnical systems, Luciano aspires to (1) elicit and align to human values norms and (2) incorporate ethical principles, while (3) using an interactive perspective for human control and responsibility, and (4) incorporating emergent societal norms.
