After obtaining his BSc. in Artificial Intelligence and MSc. in Computer Science, Mike Huisman joined LIACS in March 2021 as a teaching Ph.D. candidate. He is part of the Reinforcement Learning Group at LIACS and has also joined the ADA group in November 2021.
His research is in the field of deep meta-learning, where the goal is to learn an efficient deep learning algorithm that can learn new tasks quickly (from a limited amount of data). This can democratize the use of deep learning by lowering the threshold for using powerful deep learning technologies in terms of required compute resources and data. He conducts his research under the supervision of Prof. Dr. A. Plaat and Dr. J.N. van Rijn.
