Prof. Jan Treur
Dr. Sophie C.F. Hendrikse (co-speaker with Prof. Jan Treur)
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands

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 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 a self-modeling network modeling approach introduced in his Springer Nature 2020 book. A specific recent focus is on mental processes based on internal mental models and their use by internal simulation, their learning, and the control over them, which was described in his 2022 book edited together with Laila van Ments. A related focus is on the development and use of shared mental models supporting safety in organizations such as hospitals. For this focus, a new Springer Nature book about computational modeling of multilevel organizational learning edited by him, Gülay Canbaloğlu, and Anna Wiewiora is in preparation and will come out beginning of 2023. Another recent focus is on modeling how in social interactions interpersonal synchrony emerges and how this leads to adaptive interaction behaviour.
