KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Prof. Jan Treur

Full Professor of Artificial Intelligence, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands

<p style="text-align: justify; font-size: 13pt; color: black;">Jan Treur has been a full professor of AI since 1990 and is a well-recognized expert in the area of multidisciplinary human-like AI modeling. He has published over 700 well-cited papers about cognitive, affective, and social modeling and AI systems making use of such models. He has also supervised more than 40 Ph.D. students in these areas and from 2016 on written and edited three books on (adaptive) network-oriented AI modeling and its application in various other disciplines. Current research addresses the modeling of higher-order adaptive processes by self-modeling network models with a specific focus on mental processes based on internal mental models and their use by internal simulation, their learning or formation (including organizational learning), and the control over them. An application focus is on the development and use of shared mental models supporting the road toward a just safety culture in organizations such as hospitals. A joint Springer Nature book about computational modeling of multilevel organizational learning is in preparation and will come out by the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023.</p>
