I’m a second year Master’s student in Computer Science, specialising in Interactive Intelligence. I have worked on the GAIA project since my first semester, working on adapting agents for Tic Tac Toe and its variants. I believe that games are the perfect test bed for all kinds of serious research and this is one such project involving self-adaptation and meta-thinking in game playing agents.

In general, I am interested in how creative AI systems can foster an understanding of creativity and its role in cognition and the human experience. I am also deeply interested in the interplay between affect and creativity and a firm believer in AI’s original dream of Artificial General Intelligence.
