Martin Josifoski

I am a PhD student at EPFLūüá®ūüá≠adviced by Robert West. Previously, I received a M.Sc. in Data Science from EPFL where I worked as a research assistant at The Data Science Lab; I completed my M.Sc. thesis at the Learning & Adaptive Systems Group, ETHZ.

I spent some time at Microsoft Research, Redmond and FAIR, London.

My research is supported by a fellowship from the Swiss Data Science Center and grants/awards from Microsoft and Google.

My long-term research focuses on the development of a high-capable collaborative personal AI assistant that adapts to our evolving idiosyncratic needs, goals, and drives and can be trusted to act in line with our values and interests. Currently, I am working on enhancing collaboration and, since recently, memory in support of learning, adaptation, and inference.

I am the lead contributor to aiflows, a library for structured interactions of AI systems, tools, and humans.
