TU/e Fellow

Carlo van de Weijer


As General Manager of the Eindhoven AI Systems Institute at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Carlo van de Weijer focuses on bringing the potential benefits of AI to the foreground. It is our expectation that the AI technology, as it is to be developed in the upcoming years, will be relevant to all areas of science and engineering: mechanical and electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, physics, chemistry, and more. Furthermore, this AI technology will be crucial for all High Tech Systems such as intelligent machines, autonomous systems, mobility, healthcare equipment, communication, and IoT. Based on that expectation we define the long-term goal of EAISI to be the design of intelligent engineering systems that sense their environment, learn and understand it, and in interaction with humans, reason about which action to take to achieve specified goals.

With AI moving Data-only to Data-Human-Machine, we aim to use our universities traditional strengths to significantly leverage the huge potential of this next generation AI”
