Her research interests are mainly in the domain of comprehensible machine learning and high-level learning on structural data, especially inductive programming, knowledge level learning from planning, learning structural prototypes, analogical problem solving and learning. Further research is on various applications of machine learning (e.g., classifier learning from medical data and for facial expressions) and empirical and experimental work on high-level cognitive processes and usability evaluation. Ute Schmid dedicates a significant amount of her time to measures supporting women in computer science and to promote computer science as a topic in elementary, primary, and secondary education.
