PhD Programme / Institute for Logic, Language and Computation

'Neural networks are the powerful engines of modern artificial intelligence. However, we still don't really understand them: unlike classical computers, we don't have a good language or framework to explain and predict the behaviour of neural networks. Finding such a framework is a fascinating open problem at the intersection of AI, logic, math, and cognitive science.'
Levin Hornischer, PhD candidate at FNWI since 2017.

The ILLC PhD programme, organised by the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam, is a four-year programme designed to support and guide PhD candidates in their track to become highly qualified scientific researchers in the areas described by the institute's research mission. PhD candidates are given the opportunity to benefit from a rich scientific programme as well as a tailor-made transferable-skills programme.
