I am finishing my PhD soon! Please let me know if you have some open position to offer!
Ph.D. student (2010-2014) under the supervision of Professor Jürgen Schmidhuber and Dr. Alexander Forster at IDSIA (Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence), USI-SUPSI, Manno-Lugano, Switzerland.
I am broadly interested in interactive machine learning and artificial curiosity & creativity. This includes aspects of online active learning, reinforcement learning, deep learning, with applications in NLP, image recognition, HRI, and autonomous developmental robots.
