Bio-inspired Methods for Sensing & Instrumentation
Biosphere has tremendous potential to inspire engineers and scientists in exploring interesting avenues and in innovating unique solutions. In this talk, the presenter shall discuss some of his past work, all of which have the common factor of being inspired by biological systems. He shall also discuss some of his proposals for the new Computational Imaging Group.
Amit Kumar Mishra is currently a full Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, at the University of Cape Town (#136 as per THES 2020 Ranking). He did his PhD in the University of Edinburgh in 2006 and has worked in three continents so far. He works mainly in the domain of radar system design, applied machine learning and bio-inspired AI. He has authored/co-authored more than 40 journal papers and has invented six patents.
The Physicum seminars are meant for a broad auditorium of physicists and materials scientists, as well as for interested people from other natural and exact sciences (including bacheleor level students) and aim at introducing what is important and new in a certain field, or where a specific reasearch direction has reached today.
Everybody is welcome to attend.
