My goal is to better understand how brains can learn so much more autonomously than current AI systems and how we can mimic this ability in future AIs. Taking inspiration from the cognitive development of infants and children, we are constructing computational models of human learning processes and let AIs grow up and learn in simulated physical environments. We see this „Developmental AI” as a promising route towards a more human-like general intelligence. Next to this basic research, we are also developing new machine learning techniques to help us better understand brain data, in particular in the context of brain disorders.
