Jens is a PhD student part of the EHAI team at the VUB AI Lab. His main interests are in emergent communication in multi-agent systems, computational construction grammar and language grounding in robots. In his research, he investigates hybrid AI techniques (in the sense of combining symbolic and sub-symbolic approaches) for mapping between natural language utterances and their meaning. These meaning representations are composed automatically to be directly executable for example as a neural network on images for visual question answering or as an action plan on real robots for navigation. His research is funded by an FWO SB grant.
