New independent Research Group at the Cluster of Excellence 'Machine Learning'

On October 1, 2020, Dr. Charley Wu has started as head of an independent Research Group.

The newly established 'Human and Machine Cognition Lab' is affiliated both with our Cluster of Excellence 'Machine Learning' and the Tübingen AI Center. The goal of the lab is to understand the specific shortcuts and cognitive algorithms that separates human intelligence from our best artificial algorithms.

Charley Wu joins the University of Tübingen via Harvard University, where he was a postdoc working jointly with Sam Gershman and Fiery Cushman. His work is primarily concerned with understanding how people learn from sparse examples and from other people in social settings. He received a B.A in Philosophy from the University of British Columbia, a M.Sc. in Cognitive Science from the University of Vienna, and completed a PhD in Psychology from Humboldt University of Berlin while based at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development.
