Artificial Intelligence - Computational Humanness – Machine Learning - Data Science – Natural Language Processing & Understanding – Deep Learning  

My goal is to make computers truly intelligent; beyond current statistical learning, towards deeper understanding and feelings. 

I hold a Bachelor in Psychology and Management from the Open University of Israel. Currently, I’m a Ph.D. candidate in ELSC’s program “brain sciences: computation and information processing”. I’m working with Prof. Dafna Shahaf, Hyadata lab. My thesis is about soft human traits; humor, creativity and emotions. I aim to formulate, understand and computationally mimic human ill-defined qualities.

Collaborations, thoughts and brain storming are my treat, so feel free to reach out!
