Gravitation Grants 2019 – Hybrid Intelligence

Hybrid Intelligence: augmenting human intellect
Professor of Computer Science Frank van Harmelen (member of the Network Institute) leads a team of scientists from six Dutch universities with the aim of combining human and artificial intelligence. The goal is to enrich, rather than replace, human intelligence. Faculty of Humanities professor of Computational Lexicology, Piek Vossen (member of the Network Institute) is one of the main co-applicants. Other co-applicants come from the University of Amsterdam, TU Delft and the universities of Groningen, Leiden and Utrecht. The scientists will use the grant to develop AI techniques aimed at collaboration between people and intelligent computers in hybrid teams that perform better than people or computers separately.
