The ReJAM project is a collaboration between the Interactive Intelligence group of Delft University of Technology and the 4TU.Humans&Technology Research Center.

Logos Partners

Collaborators in the ReJAM project are:

  • Ir. Roel Boumans
    Roel works in the 4TU.Humans&Technology research centre as a PhD candidate. His research focusses on the use of intelligent social robots for applications in health care.
  • Dr. Marieke M.M. Peeters -
    Marieke works at TNO Soesterberg as a research scientist Artificial Intelligence within the Perceptual and Cognitive Systems department. She combines her knowledge of both human cognition and artificial intelligence in her research. Her research focuses on long-term human-agent interaction and the establishment of personal, confidential, and secure human-agent relationships. Since 2014, she has investigated how technology can be used to support people with dementia and their social environment to engage in music-related activities so as to stimulate physical, cognitive, emotional, and social well-being.
  • Prof. Dr. Mark A. Neerincx -
    Mark is Professor in Human-Centered Computing at TU Delft and Principal Scientist at TNO. His research aims at the development of joint human-agent activities that evolve over time for enhanced performance and well-being.  Endowing the “technological agents” (e.g., e-coaches, virtual assistants or social robots) with human values is crucial to establish the intended harmonization (such as establishing feelings of security and privacy).  Models and methods are being developed to sense, model and harmonize the social, cognitive, affective and physical processes. Music can facilitate part of these processes, particularly when it is tailored to the specific persons, activities and contexts.
  • Dr. Maaike Harbers -
    Maaike works as a postdoctoral researcher in the Interactive Intelligence Group at the Delft University of Technology. In 2011, she obtained a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from Utrecht University, performed at Utrecht University, TNO Human Factors in Soesterberg, and the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition in Pensacola, Florida. In 2006, she obtained a M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence and a M.A. in Philosophy of the Cognitive Sciences, both from the University of Groningen, partly performed at the Research Institute of Artificial Intelligence in Barcelona. Her research interests include human-agent teamwork, team mental models, information sharing, explainable AI, theory of mind, value sensitive design, human-computer interaction, and multi-agent systems.

Former collaborators:

  • Ismini Psychoula  (MSc) -
    Ismini currently works at de Montfort University, where she works as an early-stage researcher within the European Marie Curie Innovative Training Network program ACROSSING.
