Congratulations to my PhD supervisor, Professor Kristin Ytterstad Pettersen, on being awarded the Bode Prize for her groundbreaking research, "the closest you get to the Nobel Prize in cybernetics".
As you may know, the IEEE Norway Section is now approaching for voting. Voting will start from Dec. 1st 2019 and close at Dec 15th 2019. For the health of our section, I really encourage you to take the time to exercise your vote to choose our future.
On Friday 22.11.2019, a television crew from the Italian channel La7 visited the Dept. of Engineering Sciences, University of Agder (UiA), Grimstad. The crew interviewed me and other colleagues. The crew also also visited the university facilities and laboratories, such as the Mechatronics Innovation Lab (MIL) and the I4Helse arena. The crew was very interested in assistive technology for elderly people.
On the 26th of November 2019, I was honoured to represent the Dept. of Engineering Sciences, University of Agder (UiA), Grimstad, and the Dept. of Mechanical, Electronic and Chemical Engineering at Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet) at the H2020 upcoming calls on Robotics and AI: Information and Brokerage day. This was a good opportunity to initiate synergies with potential partners within the field of mechatronics.
On the 15th of November 2019, a delegation of colleagues from the Dept. of Mechanical, Electronic and Chemical Engineering at Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet) visited the Dept. of Engineering Sciences, University of Agder (UiA), Grimstad. This was a good opportunity to initiate synergies between universities within the field of mechatronics.
On behalf of the University of Agder (UiA) and of Oslo Metropolitan university (OsloMet), I was delighted and honoured to be invited as a keynote speaker at the International Conference on Intelligent Technologies and Applications (INTAP), 6-8 November, 2019, Bahawalpur Pakistan.
Congratulations to my students on successfully defending their master theses. It's been great having you as part of our team. I am proud of your achievements and I am looking forward to your upcoming research breakthroughs!
The Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Society (NAIS) was established in October 1985 as a representative body for the Norwegian Artificial Intelligence community. Its aim is to promote the study, research and application of Artificial Intelligence in Norway. NAIS is a member of the European Association for Artificial Intelligence (EurAI).
