What a month! With the past October, the KD²School has officially kicked off with impressive numbers. With almost 80 applications for the PhD and PostDoc positions, we have had an intense search process for the KD²School project positions, spanning over several application events. The result is a formidable first cohort of interdisciplinary scholars: Economists, psychologists, computer scientists and information systems students are now gathering in the KD²School to bring forth the next generation of adaptive systems research.
As the research commences, we are now in the middle of assembling the teams, not only in the KD²Lab, but also in our very own KD²Loft. Beyond that, we have now also seen the first presentations by PI and KD²School members in our lecture series already. Prof. Weinhardt introduced research on adaptive mechanisms in online platforms and Prof. Ebner-Priemer has presented how adaptive technologies are used in real-world ambulatory assessment research. With much more input and creativity in front of us, we are looking forward to what the storming period in our group will bring. Stay tuned for more updates from the KD²School here!
