Clayton Baker


I am a Master's student (2020-2022) at the Department of Computer Science in the University of Cape Town. My supervisor is Prof. Tommie Meyer.

My Master’s research involves conducting surveys to find patterns of human reasoning and using these findings to inform and evaluate the reasoning processes of Artificial Intelligence systems.

I would describe myself as a critical thinker who is well-organised and thorough. I hold the esteemed Vice-Chancellor's Master’s Research Scholarship, awarded for academic excellence.

I have co-authored a paper, "Cognitive Defeasible Reasoning: the Extent to which Forms of Defeasible Reasoning Correspond with Human Reasoning", which will be published by Springer in the CCIS series in 2020.
