• teaching actvites in “Advanced topics in artfcial intelligence” (12 hours of lectures + 12 hours of practcal
work) in the Master in Computer Science and the Master in Computer Engineering and Management;
• a partcipaton in teaching actvites in “Seminars of artfcial intelligence” and “Challenges in artfcial intelligence” in the Master in Computer Science, the Master in Computer Engineering and Management, and the Master in Electrical Engineering.
Some of these teaching actvites can be followed by students in other disciplines. Additonal teaching dutes will be assigned at the levels of Bachelor and Master, in Computer Science, in Computer Engineering and Management, and in Electrical Engineering, so that the appointed person will eventually have the same teaching load as other faculty members in the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Science.
