Lennart is a PhD student at King’s College London where he is part of a cohort researching how to make AI safe and trustworthy. In his current project, he is researching how robots can learn to proactively explain their decisions and assist a person in collaborative scenarios. As part of this, he trains machine learning models to predict when explanations are needed and what they should be about by interpreting the user’s non-verbal behaviour and contextual task clues.
He is also involved in multiple interdisciplinary and international collaborations, in which he researches conceptual metaphors and image schemas in text corpora using tools from natural language processing and theories from cognitive linguistics.
