About us

The MINE research group follows an interdisciplinary research approach and is embedded in a field that deals with the application of Artificial Intelligence, especially Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. In this context, we collaborate across departments with colleagues from different faculties and some Interdisciplinary Centres such as the C2DH, LCSB, the new Ethics Centre, the departments of Linguistics, Cognitive Sciences, Life Sciences, Finance, and Philosophy. In addition, there are valuable connections with the FU Berlin, the University of Bologna, and UC London. We are currently very involved in the Esch 2022 Year of Culture and in the AI RoboLab of the University. In addition, there are student projects with industry partners such as RTL, IEE, European Investment Bank, SES and Post round off the research. MINE is a member of the AI Robolab of the university.

Currently, MINE consists of one professor, one PostDoc and six PhD students, and one secretary. In terms of educating students at Bachelor's, Master's and PhD level, we are active at the University of Luxembourg (Master in Computer Science, Master in Mathematics, Master in Finance, Master in Philosophy; Bachelor in Computer Science, Bachelor in Computer Science) as well as at the FU Berlin and Singapore University Technology and Design (SUTD).

Medical non-adherence (MNA) is one of the most pressing issues in health care. It claims lives, accelerates patients’ health deterioration, and its economic impact is tremendous: 818 billion USD annually (WHO, 2020). In developed countries, among patients with chronic illnesses, medical non-adherence averages at 50%. The elderly are particularly vulnerable. …
