Interview for Hackademia Podcast

Last week I agreed to take part in this new project created by two students of the Department of Data Science at Maastricht University called Hackademia podcast. Their idea is to make podcasts about interesting research projects and explain them for the general public, so to make complex ideas simple.

I was invited to the studios of RTV Maastricht to present my PhD project the Multimodal Tutor, talk about multimodal learning analytics and the role of artificial intelligence in my field.

It was my first experience with a radio (not live) interview and I found it actually quite fun. Lot of things to learn though, such as the need to be more spontaneous following less the script. In the end however was quite fun!
