The goal of the MODUS project is to develop methods and approaches for detecting and analyzing anomalous patterns ("anomalies") in ubiquitous and social interaction networks. Examples of applications are investigations of the spread of information, discovering events or unusual topics in heterogeneous network data, and identification of especially interesting or outstanding behavior of actors within networks. Methods for anomaly detection and the formalization of reference models will be investigated and evaluated on synthetic and real-world data. The overall goal of the project is to improve the accuracy of anomaly detection and to increase the transparency of the computational anomaly-detection methods.

Tilburg School of Humanities
School and department
As of January 2018, the School of Humanities will become the School of Humanities and Digital Sciences. One of its departments, Cognitive Science & Artificial Intelligence, emphasizes innovative cutting-edge research at the nexus of cognitive science and artificial intelligence. It is affiliated with the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (www.jads.nl). Researchers in the Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence track have access to computer clusters, experimental lab facilities, and the virtual and mixed reality DAF Technology Lab and its sensing technologies. Moreover, researchers play an important role in Mind Labs (www.mind-labs.eu), an initiative that fosters collaborations between knowledge institutions and corporations in the field of interactive technologies and behavior.
