Responsible Intelligent agents & Intelligent human/agent-agent interaction
Our mission is to understand and engineer collaboration between humans & agents. We develop theories, models and methods of interactive intelligence by combining methods from AI and the social sciences.
About the group
The Interactive Intelligence (II) section focusses on socially interactive, intelligent agents. We research the intelligence that underlies and co-evolves during the repeated interactions of human and technology “agents” who cooperate to achieve a joint goal. Our research program aims for synergy and social interaction between humans and technology, to empower humans in their social context. The new technological challenges we face arise from the need to integrate Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Engineering, and behavioural sciences. In particular, the technological challenge is to develop socially aware agents that in interaction with humans co-adapt and co-learn over time. Social awareness implies context-awareness with the knowledge to interpret the physical situation in social terms and the knowledge to behave in a distinctive individual way that is personalized towards those the agent interacts with. In this manner, we endeavour to develop the interactive agent technology that empowers humans and groups of humans to deal with the societal and individual challenges such as the increasing need for sustained self-management for healthy ageing, safety and life-long education.

Catholijn Jonker participates in introduction of the BOLD Cities program
Catholijn Jonker participated in the series "Coffee Break with Urbana", now on YouTube. Subject of this talk was among other things the introduction of the BOLD Cities program. The Leiden University, TU Delft, and Erasmus University Rotterdam through their BOLD Cities program brings together research and projects on Big, Open, and Linked Data (BOLD) to help cities work much more efficiently and encourage citizen engagement.

Catharine Oertel and Pradeep Murukannaiah join new BOLD Cities research team
BOLD Cities researchers came together in October of last year to collectively design two new research projects. In a day-long pressure cooker of ideas, knowledge and approaches, colleagues from our three universities proposed two interdisciplinary themes that directly speak to the mission of BOLD Cities.

AiBLE Lab launched
The AiBLE Lab, a new Delft AI Lab working towards activating intelligence in building lasting and liveable environments has been officially launched. The lab will be led by Tong Wang (Faculty of ABE, Management in the Built Environment) and our own Luciano Siebert (Faculty of EEMCS, Interactive Intelligence group).

Frans A. Oliehoek delivers keynote address at Workshop Computational Intelligence 2021
The audience of the annual workshop has a strong background of the different methods of computational intelligence. About half of the participants are computer scientist. The other half comes from engineering sciences focusing on control theory/automation control in process engineering, industrial automation, power systems, automotive engineering, robotics, and medical engineering.

Mark Neerincx delivers keynote address at ICSR conference
Due to the loss of cognitive and behavioral abilities, people with dementia (PwD) become more dependent on their (in)formal carers and may stop engaging in meaningful activities. Carers often feel burdened when they cannot provide enduring support to engage the PwD in such activities. An adjustable combination of Social AI (SAI) technology could help to initiate, coordinate, guide, stimulate and personalize the activities of PwD.

Catholijn Jonker sprak op Deskundigenbijeenkomst Eerste Kamer
Catholijn Jonker legde uit wat artificiële intelligentie precies is, welke soorten systemen er bestaan en wat we van verantwoorde AI mogen verwachten. Ook lichtte ze toe waarom het complex is sommige AI-systemen uit te leggen, en hoe ze daar in haar onderzoek oplossingen voor ontwikkelt.

The PhD Winterschool on Humans and Technology is coming up!
The 4TU network is planning for the 5th iteration of a PhD-Winterschool on Humans & Technology. It is of specific interest for PhD-students who would like to learn on theories, models, methods and tools on human-technology collaboration (e.g., hybrid intelligence, human-robot interaction, intelligent conversational agents, …) and connect to other researchers in the field in an informal setting.
