Annette ten Teije appointed Professor AI in Medicine

1 July 2021
With effect from 15 June 2021, Annette ten Teije was appointed Professor AI in Medicine in the Computer Science department. In various AI groups, Ten Teije will be conducting research in the field of AI in Medicine and she will work on a new AI for Health master track.

Ten Teije will be focusing on knowledge representation and reasoning in the medical domain. Medical guidelines, medical quality indicators and clinical trials are great examples of this. Due to an abundance of data, it is possible nowadays to construct and adapt medical models, not only by explicit modelling but also by using data, literature available in digital format and publicly-accessible sources of knowledge (Linked Open Data).

Contrary to the classical, purely knowledge-driven approaches, this results in the integration of knowledge-driven (reasoning) and data-driven (learning) approaches. Ten Teije wants to obtain further insights into this from the perspective of knowledge engineering, knowledge representation and the medical domain. Her research fits in well with VU Amsterdam’s recently founded Campus Centre for Artificial Intelligence & Health.

Annette ten Teije obtained her PhD from the University of Amsterdam in 1997. She worked as a postdoc at the Imperial Research Cancer Fund in London and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. She also worked as assistant professor at Utrecht University. Since 2002 she has been employed in the Computer Science department at VU Amsterdam.
