2 December 2019, kick-off meeting

At our kick-off meeting, all our scientists dynamically paired in teams of supervisor and co-supervisor, and during the day we instantiated our overall project plan into 27 PhD proposals, to be used as the basis for recruiting our PhD students. 

7 July 2020, consortium meeting

During our first consortium-wide meeting (online, of course, in these days), we had

  • a keynote from Ana Paiva on “Hybrid Groups of Humans and Agents: engineering sociality and collaboration”
  • break-out groups for each of our 4 Research Lines where the newly joined PhD students could introduce themselves, and the first plans for work in the Research Lines were discussed
  • plenary feedback from all of the Research Line break-outs, and a plenary discussion on the tools we will use to collaborate
With close to 50 people on-line, this was an intense but surprisingly successful meeting. 

4 December 2020, Hybrid Intelligence: the good, the bad and the ugly

Together with the Zwaartekracht consortium on “Ethics of Socially Disruptive Technologies“, we organise a workshop discussing “the good” and the “not-so-good” application potential of Hybrid Intelligence techniques, triggered by a lively email discussion on our mailing list. Organisers of the workshop are Bart Verheij and Birna van Riemsdijk
