Welcome Students to the Holzinger Group, HCI-KDD, where machine learning meets health informatics.

Science is to test crazy ideas, Engineering is to put these ideas into Business: The Holzinger group is doing theoretical, algorithmical, and experimental studies to help to understand the problem of knowledge extraction from complex data to discover unknown unknowns. We try to help to answer a grand question: How can we perform a task by exploiting knowledge extracted during problem solving of previous tasks. Contributions to this problem would have major impact to Artificial Intelligence generally, and Machine Learning specifically, as we could develop software which learns from previous experience similarly as we humans do.

Andreas Holzinger is lead of the Holzinger Group, HCI–KDD, Institute for Medical Informatics, Statistics and Documentation at the Medical University Graz, and Associate Professor of Applied Computer Science at the Faculty of Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering at Graz University of Technology. Currently, Andreas is Visiting Professor for Machine Learning in Health Informatics at the Faculty of Informatics at Vienna University of Technology. He serves as consultant for the Canadian, US, UK, Swiss, French, Italian and Dutch governments, for the German Excellence Initiative, and as national expert in the European Commission. His research interests are in supporting human intelligence with machine intelligence to help solve problems in health informatics.
Andreas obtained a PhD in Cognitive Science from Graz University in 1998 and his Habilitation (second PhD) in Computer Science from Graz University of Technology in 2003. Andreas was Visiting Professor in Berlin, Innsbruck, London (twice), and Aachen. He founded the Expert Network HCI–KDD to foster a synergistic combination of methodologies of two areas that offer ideal conditions toward unravelling problems in understanding intelligence: Human–Computer Interaction (HCI) and Knowledge Discovery/Data Mining (KDD), with the goal of supporting human intelligence with machine learning. Andreas is Associate Editor of Knowledge and Information Systems(KAIS), Section Editor of BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making (MIDM), and member of IFIP WG 12.9 Computational Intelligence, more information: http://hci-kdd.org
