Classes in Charge at NITech:
Dr. Baarslag is a Scientific Staff Member at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), the national research institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in the Netherlands. He is a Visiting Associate Professor at Nagoya Institute of Technology and Visiting Fellow at the University of Southampton.
Dr. Baarslag graduated from Utrecht University with a MSc in Mathematics and a BSc in Computer Science (both cum laude). He obtained his PhD (cum laude) from Delft University of Technology in 2014 on the topic of intelligent decision support systems for automated negotiation. Between 2014 and 2016, he was a Research Fellow in the Electronics and Computer Science Department of the University of Southampton, where he worked on negotiation techniques for obtaining meaningful consent.
Dr. Baarslag studies intelligent and autonomous systems that can collaborate through the process of joint decision making. Practical applications include smart energy trading, the Internet of Things, trading platforms, autonomous vehicles, and digital privacy & security assistants. Dr. Baarslag currently investigates how negotiation AI can learn to haggle on behalf of users as part of an NWO Veni grant, called Representing Users in a Negotiation. His research is featured in Science Magazine, Wired, and New Scientist. His research interests include agent-based negotiation, coordination and cooperation, preference elicitation, decision making under uncertainty.
Tim is the leading developer of Genius, a negotiation environment for the design and evaluation of automated negotiators. He is also an organizer of the annual International Automated Negotiating Agent Competition. Tim is a member of the ACM Future of Computing Academy for outstanding early career researchers. He serves as a PC member in top-level conferences such as AAAI and IJCAI, and as a reviewer in high-ranking journals such as Artificial Intelligence and JAAMAS. He is also an organizer of the Workshop on Conflict Resolution in Decision Making (COREDEMA 2016, 2017).
