Welcome to my humble internet home

My name is Martijn van Otterlo and I'm an artificial intelligence researcher with a keen eye for ethical and societal implications of smart algorithms

I'm an expert in artificial intelligence, and more in particular probabilistic logical approaches to vision-action learning based on reinforcement learning, computational logic, computer vision and robots. My second expertise is ethics of algorithms: how intelligent algorithms change our society and values.

Some current activities I just finished crafting and lecturing my own course on ethics of algorithms (6EC). Furthermore, the "smart library" project (BLIIPS, see tab) has many ongoing things, I am an invited speaker at the QQML conference in Ireland (May), I'm attending the Smilee workshop in Belgium (May) and guest lecturing in Brussels on the ethics of algorithms (May). I am programme committee member of the Benelux Conference on machine learning (Benelearn 2017), the European conference on machine learning (ECML) and the international joint conference on artificial intelligence (IJCAI). Recently I've been reviewing for machine learning journal, data mining and knowledge discovery, and artificial intelligence journal.

I love books, science, martial arts, photography, Lego, libraries and much much more. Feel free to look around to find out more about me.
