Can machines think? This has been a conundrum for philosophers for years, but the answer to this question also as real social importance. Modern robots can assist us in our homes and have human-like qualities. The internet provides us with personalized tools that learn from our behavior.

It is therefore of more than academic importance that we learn to think clearly about the cognitive powers of computers, and what we can expect of them in the future.

The purpose of the Machine Learning Platform is to provide an interface for discussion and interaction between the academic and industrial research and development communities in the Netherlands.
