Welcome to the I-Machine-Think website

We are a research group at the University of Amsterdam.

In our group, we consider different research topics, including but not limited to Compositionality, interpretability of neural networks, neural language models and language emergence in referential games. We collaborate with several people from both other universities and industry. Are you a master student and looking for a research project? Have a look at our publications page, check Elia Bruni’s or Dieuwke Hupkes’ personal websites, or get in touch via email!

Also, have a look at our interpretability library for neural networks: https://github.com/i-machine-think/diagnnose!
