**05.06.2023** Computational model mimics humans’ ability to predict emotions

Using insights into how people intuit others' emotions, researchers have designed a model that approximates this aspect of human social intelligence. When interacting with another person, you likely spend part of your time trying to anticipate how they will feel about what you're saying or doing. This task requires a cognitive skill called theory of mind, which helps us to infer other people's beliefs, desires, intentions, and emotions.

Dennis Schol defended his PhD thesis at the department of Mathematics and Computer Science on May 16th. The production process of large high-tech manufacturers, such as ASML, is characterized by many parties supplying the components that make up the final product. If these parties can't supply on time, this results in supply-chain delays that may have major financial consequences.

A new tool brings the benefits of AI programming to a much broader class of problems. Close One reason deep learning exploded over the last decade was the availability of programming languages that could automate the math - college-level calculus - that is needed to train each new model. Neural networks are trained by tuning their parameters to try to maximize a score that can be rapidly calculated for training data.
