About

Pieter Wellens is a post-doc researcher in artificial intelligence and linguistics at the AI-Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). In his research he aims to understand, through computational multi-agent simulations, the many flexible and adaptive ways in which we use language. At the VUB he also holds several teaching responsibilities for courses in artificial intelligence, logic and software engineering. He is one of the core developers of the multi-agent language game framework Babel 2 which is extensively used by researchers at the VUB AI-Lab and Sony CSL Paris. Pieter Wellens graduated from the University of Antwerp with a M.Sc. in Computer Science and a Bachelor in Philosophy.
