Fine-tuning the drug approval process.

Datum:07 december 2020
To decide whether to allow a newly developed drug to the market or not, a lot of factors need to be taken into account. Evaluating effects and side effects requires precise standards, sometimes they are life and death decisions. Dr. Don van Ravenzwaaij researches current practices of drug approval from a statistical standpoint. He contributes an inspiring perspective to look at numbers. Since AI research is constantly looking for new ways to evaluate and organize data, looking at common practices of other disciplines can be of great value.

Data is the new oil fueling marketing activities. It helps to target the right customers at the right time with the right instrument. But recent privacy regulations limit its use. So, how do marketers make the most out of these data without breaking privacy rules? Jaap Wieringa, professor at the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Groningen, and his team give answer to this question by developing new marketing models that prove: targeted marketing is possible, even in the face of privacy concerns.

Reading Between the Lines - Artificial Intelligence in Linguistics

Datum:13 oktober 2020
Auteur:Team Industry Relations
Every day billions of words are written, people write short texts, long texts, formal texts and informal gibberish. Language is a big part of how we communicate what we think, how we feel and who we are. To every text, there is more meaning than just the words itself. How to make sense of it all? Professor Malvina Nissim from the Center for Language and Cognition (CLCG) of the University of Groningen (UG) researches the applications of artificial intelligence (AI) in linguistics. She is specifically interested in author profiling - finding out about characteristics of an author by analyzing the text.

Understanding Human and Artificial Intelligence

Datum:22 september 2020
Auteur:Team Industry Relations
Artificial intelligence is in the spotlight in today’s world and it gets more attention than human intelligence. Still, human intelligence and artificial intelligence are closely related. People use metaphors of the human brain to explain artificial intelligence and there are many similarities regarding the architecture of both. In professor Niels Taatgen’s group, this relation is turned around. They work on a cognitive architecture called PRIMs that puts artificial intelligence to work to achieve a better understanding of the human brain. Understanding human intelligence is a huge challenge, but improved understanding holds great potential for psychology and AI research alike.

Cutting Crime Impact - the human rights and ethics watchdog

Datum:15 september 2020
Auteur:Team Industry Relations
Law enforcement agencies (LEAs) are confronted with difficult decisions regularly. They need to decide on effective policing, recidivism of criminals and find ways to improve overall security. Those are complicated decisions which should be taken based on facts and data. This complex collection and analytics exercise is increasingly supported by algorithms assisting LEAs, because they are capable of including more information in the decision-making. However, when automated decisions come into play, a close look at details is needed since lives of citizens and groups are shaped by technology. Oskar Gstrein, Assistant Professor at the Department of Governance and Innovation at Campus Fryslân, works on a Horizon 2020 project called Cutting Crime Impact (CCI) to solve ethical, legal and social issues in automated law enforcement.
