Winners Ammodo Science Award for groundbreaking research announced
Barteld Kooi received the NWO Veni grant for his research proposal Developing dynamic epistemic logic guided by old paradoxes and new techniques and the NWO Vidi grant for his research proposal Logics for Intelligent Interaction: Expressivity and Succinctness.
Veni and Vidi are part of the innovation programme from NWO which consists of Veni, Vidi and Vici. Scientists at different stages of their careers are enabled to carry out groundbreaking research. The Veni is intended for recently graduated researchers, Vidi, for researchers who have carried out several years of research after receiving their PhDs and the Vici grants are awarded to senior researchers who have demonstrated the ability to develop their own line of research.

Philosopher Barteld Kooi combines almost impenetrable abstract information science with everyday applications such as card games and the National Science Quiz. His work focuses on transcribing complex information problems into mathematical formulas. Which logical strategy in a game gives the best outcome? And what happens if in addition to logic probability also comes into play?See profile
