Personal profile

Research profile

Uzay Kaymak is a Full Professor and Chair of Information Systems in Health Care at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research focuses on intelligent decision support systems, data and process mining and computational modeling methods. He has worked on the development of computational intelligence methods for decision models in which linguistic information, represented either as declarative linguistic rules derived from experts or obtained through natural language processing, is combined with numerical information extracted from data by computational and machine learning methods. Fuzzy set theory is at the basis of such models. The resulting (adaptive) decision support systems have been used in various fields such as financial decision-making, economic analysis and clinical decision support.
