Research Interests

  • Inductive Inference or Language Learning in the Limit
  • Deep Learning and Neural Networks
  • Applications of Evolutionary Algorithms

On my research page you can find an introduction and desription of my work regarding inductive inference. Furthermore, you can find a video (presented in the 17th IREBS Real Estate Symposium) where we present our work on an automated real estate valuation process compliant with German law.
