Bert Bredeweg is an associate professor at the University of Amsterdam (Faculty of Science).
Research 

Topics

  • Knowledge capture The development of representation and reasoning technology for articulating and communicating knowledge (my current focus is on Environmental Science and Ecology).
  • Qualitative Reasoning An area of Artificial Intelligence that deals with conceptual knowledge. It involves non-numerical (symbolic) models and simulations of systems and their behaviour, preserving all the important behavioural properties and distinctions.
  • Learning by modelling Research on Interactive Learning Environments (ILE). Dealing with issues such as external representations, knowledge visualisation, modelling, and knowledge communication.
  • Cognitive diagnose Relates to user modelling. Diagnosing and assessing the problem solving behaviour of learners.
  • Human-computer interaction Next to issues concerning the 'look and feel' of an interface, interesting research focuses on how to use the computer as a medium for communication. How should 'contents' of a computational model be 'presented' in order to facilitate learning and understanding.
  • Computer-mediated therapy Research on counselling using a structured approach administered via the WWW. Carried out in collaboration with the company Interapy. An important class of treatments deals with Post-traumatic Stress Syndromes (PTSS).
