Biography

Adnen Abdessaied is a PhD student in the Perceptual User Interface group since March 2021. He holds a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Simulation Technology (SimTech) from the University of Stuttgart. The latter was obtained with an overall verdict of very good with distinction and won the Outstanding Work Award from the Industrial Consortium SimTech (IC SimTech). In his Bachelor's studies, he focused on numerical mathematics and classical machine learning techniques. In his master's studies, he got involved in deep multi-modal memory-enhanced neural networks that are inspired by the human brain. His research interests lie in the design and interpretability of multi-modal hybrid Neuro-Symbolic AI models.
