The Hybrid Intelligence Centre is a large 10 year nationwide research programme funded by the Dutch Government. Hybrid Intelligence (HI) is the combination of human and machine intelligence, expanding human intellect instead of replacing it. Our goal is to design Hybrid Intelligent systems, an approach to Artificial Intelligence that puts humans at the centre, changing the course of the ongoing AI revolution. You will be part of the Hybrid Intelligence Centre that offers training and opportunities for joint research and technical support.
