Faculty of Science
The University of Amsterdam
is the Netherlands' largest university, offering the widest range of academic programmes. At the UvA, 30,000 students, 6,000 staff members and 3,000 PhD candidates study and work in a diverse range of fields, connected by a culture of curiosity. The Faculty of Science
has a student body of around 8,000, as well as 1,800 members of staff working in education, research or support services. Researchers and students at the Faculty of Science are fascinated by every aspect of how the world works, be it elementary particles, the birth of the universe or the functioning of the brain. The mission of the Informatics Institute
(IvI) is to perform curiosity-driven and use-inspired fundamental research in Computer Science. The main research themes are Artificial Intelligence, Computational Science and Systems and Network Engineering. Our research involves complex information systems at large, with a focus on collaborative, data driven, computational and intelligent systems, all with a strong interactive component.
The Intelligent Data Engineering Lab
(INDElab) investigates intelligent systems that support people in their work with data and information from diverse sources. While most machine learning starts with an abundant set of fairly clean data, one of the lab's aims is to tackle machine learning problems in which the data is heterogeneous, noisy, missing or with few labels. The lab is strongly embedded in the larger UvA and Amsterdam artificial intelligence ecosystem with strong connections to multiple Innovation Centre for AI
(ICAI) labs and theUvA Data Science Centre
(DSC). INDELab values practice-informed and interdisciplinary research and outreach.
