Our vision is to develop explainable AI (transparent algorithms) and multimodal integration methods to help achieve this goal. Your activities will include developing AI-based methods for structuring, analyzing, integrating and interpreting real-world data, and using these methods in diagnosis and prognosis.

As a researcher in the talent track, you will have the opportunity to build a viable research group by acquiring independent and collaborative grants.
