Chercheur au Laboratoire d'Informatique, de Robotique et de Microelectronique de Montpellier, Université de Montpellier
It is very important for machines to “understand human behaviors” (recognize the motivation, emotion and cause of observed actions) and predict human behaviors, in order to interact with them. And this is not a trivial challenge because human behavior is complex and still not very well understood in neuroscience and psychology. My work integrates Neuroscience, behavioral psychology and Robotics to address this challenge. We use methods from neuroscience to develop a computational understanding of the human brain and behavior, and use this to develop intelligent and “human like” machine behavior near humans.
My name is Ganesh Gowrishankar. I am a senior researcher with the le Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) in France and I work on the science of human-machine interactions (https://www.lirmm.fr/ganesh-gowrishankar/).

Lecturer in Evolutionary Developmental Biology, University of Sheffield
Our research comprises three major areas of interest: (i) biodiversity and morphological evolution of fishes; (ii) comparative dental development and regeneration; and (iii) evolutionary developmental biology.
We study the development of dental diversity across a range of vertebrates. Our lab questions how varieties of teeth are patterned and modified across species, how they form, and how they are replaced for continued production, specifically in fishes. Fishes account for more than half of all extant vertebrates and in addition have an immense diversity of dental form. The models that we study vary vastly from initial dental patterning and tooth number, to the capacity for dental regeneration with a diverse array of tooth replacement modes. This comparative context provides a framework in which to understand the complexities of dental diversity at the genetic level.
Our broad research focus is the genetic basis of developmental mechanisms that regulate vertebrate craniofacial patterning and evolution. By coupling evolutionary and developmental genetic disciplines with more translational biosciences we aim to break down the complexities of morphological development, diversity and regeneration of the craniofacial skeleton, and in particular the dentition.
Professor of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol
I graduated from the University of London with a degree in Ecology, and then did my PhD on the behavioural ecology of birds at Stirling. I came to Bristol in 1985 to work on aerodynamics of bat flight, and was then awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship to combine my interests in ecology, behaviour and bat biology. I have worked on bats on 5 continents, with recent studies based in China, Madagascar, Malaysia, Malawi and Colombia. In 2010 I was awarded the Gerrit S. Miller Award at the University of Toronto in recognition of "outstanding service and contribution to the field of chiropteran biology." My recent research has focussed on conservation biology, especially global change biology and molecular ecology. I've supervised 60 PhD students and 25 Masters students.
Although my research has focussed on bats, it has diversified to cover birds, marsupials, crayfish, primates, insect vectors and crocodiles, and has spanned disciplines ranging from underwater bioacoustics to molecular ecology. I'm happiest working in the field, though lab studies are important for my research too.
