Topic：Swarm Intelligence Research at IRIDIA AI Lab
Speaker: Prof. Marco Dorigo (Universite' Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium), IEEE Fellow, AAAI Fellow, and ECCAI Fellow
Time: 11:00-12:00 AM
Venue: E706, New Main Building
In the talk I will introduce the main concepts behind swarm intelligence. I will first show a few example of swarm intelligence systems in nature and then I will show how these natural systems have inspired algorithms both in optimisation and in collective robotics.
Biography of the Speaker:
Marco Dorigo received his PhD in electronic engineering in 1992 from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, and the title of Agrégé de l’Enseignement Supérieur, from Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), in 1995.
