Katrin Schulz

Associate Professor

Dr. Katrin Schulz is an Associate Professor at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam. Katrin’s research focuses on the question of how we, humans, reason and make sense of the world. She approaches this question from a multi-disciplinary perspective, combining tools and knowledge from Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Cognitive Science and Philosophy.

Currently, Katrin is working on how our understanding of the world changes in the context of the ongoing Digital revolution of society. She leads the NWO project “The biased reality of online media – Using stereotypes to make media manipulation visible”. The goal of this project is to develop a model that allows the automatic extraction of stereotypes and biases from (online) text corpora. In the context of this project, Katrin also works on methods to measure biases and stereotypes in large language models and humans. Together with Marjolein Lanzing she is looking for ways to mitigate and prevent such biases that go beyond technological fixes.
