Machine learning has a wide range of uses, thus concerns regarding their reliability and safety are valid. One way to ensure the properties of safety and trustworthiness of a machine learning system is to test it. Testing machine learning systems, however, is...

I am researching ways for robots to independently learn interaction with human users in a safe and non-invasive way. This way, trustworthiness is built through increase in comfort of the interaction, as the robot is able to adapt to its user...

My PhD project focuses on techniques for safe reinforcement learning. More generally, I’m interested in the problem of AI alignment – how we can create artificial agents that act in accordance with our values, even if those values are somewhat...

My PhD project creates methods that check whether the dataset used for training ML models is biased in order to avoid unfair outputs produced by the AI system. The idea is to use computational argumentation as a basis of explaining the outputs of...

For my PhD project, I research explainable agents and how they can adapt their explanations to a specific user based on physiological data and social cues. This could, for instance, mean finding out when to explain or how to find the right level of detail for an...
