May 2017. Prof. Dr. Kristian Kersting joined TU Darmstadt and the Centre of Cognitive Science as a Principal Investigator. Prof. Kersting is a full professor for the core area Machine Learning at the Department of Computer Science. “Can machines learn from their own experiences and from others to improve their performance?” and how could one manage that “machines can learn as easily and quickly as human beings?” are two questions out of many that Prof. Kersting deals with. We are looking forward to exciting research bridging human cognition and machine learning.
