Jun.-Prof. Dr. Felix Lindner




  • since 10/2019: Juniorprofessor for explainable artificial intelligence, Ulm University
  • 10/2015 – 09/2019: Lecturer, Foundations of Artificial Intelligence, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg
  • 10/2009 – 09/2015: Research Associate, Knowledge and Language Processing, University of Hamburg

Research Interests

  • Explainability of AI Systems
    • Conceptualizations of Explanation, Reason, and Causality for making sure artificial agents (esp. robots) are making the right decisions for the right reasons
    • Explanations as input and output, using explanations for interactive learning and transparent AI
  • Machine Ethics
  • Human-Robot Interaction
    • Social Robot Navigation
    • Explainability in Human-Robot Interaction
    • Ethical discussions with the robotic head Immanuel
