FCTA Program Co-Chairs


Christian Wagner
University of Nottingham
United Kingdom


Brief Bio
Christian Wagner received his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2009 from the University of Essex, UK. He is currently a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, and founding director of the Lab for Uncertainty in Data and Decision Making (LUCID). His research focusses on the capture, modelling & handling of uncertain data arising from heterogeneous data sources, with a particular emphasis on designing interpretable AI based decision support systems. In 2017, he was recognised as a RISE (Recognising Inspirational Scientists and Engineers) Connector by EPSRC. His work ranges from decision support in cyber security and environmental management to personalisation and control in manufacturing. He has led a series of research projects with partners from industry and government with an overall value of around £10m and co/developed multiple open source software frameworks, making cutting edge research accessible to research communities beyond computer science. Dr Wagner is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems journal, Chair of the IEEE CIS Technical Committee on Fuzzy Systems and Task Force on Cyber Security; elected member-at-large of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) Administrative Committee for 2018-2020. He is a General Co-Chair of Fuzz-IEEE 2021 in Luxembourg, Europe. ... More >>


Jonathan Garibaldi
University of Nottingham
United Kingdom
http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/~jmg/home.shtml


Brief Bio
Prof Jon Garibaldi's main research interest is in the modelling of human decision making, primarily in the context of medical applications. His work to date has concentrated on utilising fuzzy logic to model the imprecision and uncertainty inherent in medical knowledge representation and decision making. This has been applied in areas such as classification of breast cancer, identification of Alzheimer's disease, and the assessment of immediate neonatal outcome. A particular interest is in the transfer of medical intelligent systems into clinical use and this has led to the study of methods of evaluating intellig ent systems and mechanisms for their implementation. Prof Garibaldi also has an interest in generic machine learning, such as clustering, classification and optimisation, particularly when applied to the optimisation of decision making models, and in the study of adaptive and time-varying behaviour. ...

Marie Cottrell
Université Paris1
France


Brief Bio
Pr. Marie Cottrell was born in Béthune (France) 1943. She was a student at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Sèvres, and received the Agrégation de Mathématiques degree in 1964 ( with 8° place), and the Thèse d'Etat (Modélisations de réseaux de neurones par des chaînes de Markov et autres applications) in 1988. From 1964 to 1967, she was a High School Teacher. From 1967 to 1988, she was successively an Assistant and an Assistant Professor at the University of Paris and at the University of Paris-Sud (Orsay), except from 1970 to 1973, on which she was a Professor at the University of Habana, Cuba. From 1989 to 20 12, she was a full Professor at the University Paris 1 - Panthéon-Sorbonne. Since 2012, she is a Professor Emeritus. She is a permanent invited professor at the University of Havana, a life member of the IEEE Society, an honorary member of the Cuban Society of Mathematics and Computation, an Honorary Doctor of the Aalto University School of Science and Technology and Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Habana. Her research interests include stochastic algorithms, large deviation theory, machine learning and computational intelligence, theory and algorithms for artificial neural networks, linear and non linear exploratory data analysis, non linear forecasting methods.
