Visit of Kenji Matsui, director of the Robotics and Design Centre of the Osaka Institute of Technology
Professor Kenji Matsui, visited us last week. He is the Director of the Robotics and Design Centre of the Osaka Institute of Technology. We’ve been collaborating with this centre for years and now it will be one of the three building blocks of the new Biodesign centre, which is being setup in Osaka by the Japanese government.
Today I wanted to tell you about our collaboration with Saya Fujino. She has been with us since several months and we are very glad to have her in our group.
Recently we have been receiving many international visitants at our labs. Some researchers come for short stays while others come for longer periods, as in the case of Denisa Kera, who will be with us until 2020. She comes from Charles University, Prague. Dr. Kera is a philosopher and designer and experiments with various creative strategies for public participation in emerging issues of science and technology.
Keynote for ICACCCI and ISTA 2018
It will be a pleasure to be one of the speakers at the 7th International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI 2018) and the Fourth International Symposium on Intelligent Systems Technologies and Applications (ISTA ‘ 18), where issues related to informatics and technological advances will be addressed.
Artificial intelligence is in full swing and the world’s artificial intelligence researchers are currently gathering in Stockholm for the year’s largest event in this field, IJCAI (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence). Hundreds of events take place at this conference, they tackle very interesting and topical issues.
A group of colleagues from the BISITE Research Group has developed a device which allows to monitor the progress of tinnitus from the patients’ homes. This condition is associated with a noise or ringing in the ears which may be caused by a damaged auditory nerve or ear injury.
Today was a good day. Twenty years ago I defended my first doctoral thesis, in which I studied case-based reasoning systems and it came to be one of the pillars of my research work.
Vishesh Mistry from the Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur (IIT-J) will join our research group in the months of June and July. During his stay, Vishesh will help us to solve automatic vision problems and image analysis, by applying different artificial intelligence and artificial neural networks techniques.
