Work with Mark: Job as a Research Fellow

2006-09-15 01:58:29 research

Between March 2004 and March 2006 I had the fantastic opportunity to work as a research fellow for Prof. Mark d'Inverno (www2.wmin.ac.uk/~dinverm/). It was a part-time engagement at the math department at the University of Westminster: Cavendish School of Computer Science in London.

Mark is a math professor specialising in intelligent agents and also a great pianist. Our goal was to combine his (and mine) two big interests by creating musical agents that could improvise, jam and play together.
I learned a lot in the process and had to read up on math, specification languages, agent theories, genetic algorithms etc. I found so much interesting stuff out there to get totally absorbed in. This blog is partly started to document our research.
