Christine Coste Research Diretor INRIA
Dr. Christine Azevedo-Coste serves as a Research Director at INRIA, University of Montpellier, France. She earned her engineer degree in automatic control from Polytech Marseille, France, in 1997, and completed her Ph.D. in robotics and automatic control at the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble in 2002. Since 2004, Dr. Azevedo-Coste has been actively engaged as a Researcher at INRIA. She leads the CAMIN Research Team in Montpellier, France, focusing on assistive technologies. Her research interests encompass movement control, functional rehabilitation, and assistive devices, with a primary emphasis on functional electrical stimulation (FES).


Daniel Polani Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the Department of Computer Science
Daniel Polani is Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the Department of Computer Science, Director of the Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR) and Head of the Adaptive Systems Research Group at the University of Hertfordshire. His research interests concentrate on the understanding and modeling of collective complex systems and intelligent decision-making, especially in the context of cognition in artificial and biological agents. His research ranges from fundamental questions, such as the role of embodiment, intrinsic motivations, taskless utilities, self-organization and Artificial Life, to questions from cognitive science, psychology, social science, and biology. He is co-founder of the 18-monthly GSO (Guided Self-Organization) workshop series, Associate Editor of journals such as Frontiers in Robotics and AI, Advances in Complex Systems, Theory in Biosciences, reviewer for conferences such as NeurIPS, IROS, ICML, AAMAS, IEEE Alife, and has been PI in a number of FP7 and Horizon 2020 European Projects. His interest in bridging the gap between fundamental questions with practical implementation drove his interest and participation in the RoboCup competition series; amongst other, he has been President of the RoboCup Federation during the period July 2017--July 2019.
