Michiel Straat

PhD Student Intelligent Systems

University of Groningen

I am a PhD student in the Intelligent Systems group at the Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. In the project, we use techniques from statistical physics to analyze the learning behavior of machine learning models and get more insight into practically relevant phenomena, which can be used to improve machine learning algorithms.
