Lars Kai Hansen has MSc and PhD degrees in physics from University of Copenhagen. Since 1990 he has been with the Technical University of Denmark, where he currently heads the Section for Cognitive Systems. He has published more than 300 contributoins on machine learning, signal processing, and applications in AI and cognitive systems. His research has been generously funded by the Danish Research Councils and private foundations, the European Union, and the US National Institutes of Health. He has made seminal contributions to machine learning including the introduction of ensemble methods('90) and to functional neuroimaging including the first brain state decoding work based on PET('94) and fMRI('97). In the context of neuroimaging he has developed a suite of methods for visualizing machine learning models and quantification of uncertainty. In 2011 he was elected “Catedra de Excelencia” at UC3M Madrid, Spain.
