Interview with Prof. Sven Hilbert

Prof. Sven Hilbert is scientific director of the Center for University and Science Didactics. From 2005-2010 he graduated in psychology from the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich wwith a diploma. This was followed by the doctorate. From 2011 to 2014, Mr. Hilbert worked as a research assistant at Humboldt-Innovation GmbH, Berlin, Karl-Franzens University, Graz, and at the chair of psychological methodology and diagnostics at Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich.

He becomes familiar with basic algorithms and programming from ML.

Because it is part of research, (partly professional) future and already everyday.

Yes, research classification of texts and learning processes. I deliver the algorithms, the contetn interpretation is the focus of the project partners.

By evaluating digital behavioral data, data quality will reach a completely new level and bring much greater knowledge to research.

The evaluation of the data should be mentioned as a focus.

Mr. Hilbert, thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. We wish you a nice day!
