Announcing our second speaker for AI Connect, Anil Yaman, PhD candidate at the TU/e! 

He will give a very interesting talk about evolutionary computing and swarm intelligence. Evolutionary computing (EC) is an approach to produce intelligent hardware and software inspired by the process of natural evolution. Recently, EC has successfully been used to optimize controllers for autonomous agents as well as a swarm of agents that can solve a task collectively.  In particular, Anil will discuss the Phoenix project which is an application of the EC and swarm intelligence to produce swarm of agents of sensor networks to explore difficult to access environments.

Anil is currently a PhD candidate in Mathematics and Computer Science at the TU/e. His main areas of research interests are evolutionary computation, artificial neural networks, and swarm intelligence. He is particularly interested in biologically inspired computing models and approaches to learning. Anil obtained his M.S. degree from the City College of the City University of New York (USA, 2014); and from 2013 to 2015, he held a research position at the Department of Biomedical Informatics in Columbia University.
