Personal profile

Willing to supervise PhD

– agent based modelling of economic and cooperative behaviour, including explaining the correlation between political polarisation and income inequality.
- improving transparency for applied real-time AI, particularly domestic products such as robots, games, and service interface avatars.

Research interests

I am interested in Intelligence. I am widely recognised for my expertise in both building AI, and in understanding and regulating its impact on society. I also publish on cognition and cooperation in nature, largely from an evolutionary perspective.  For more details, please see the links; I maintain many web pages in detail, but not this one. (The links look like globes right under my picture, and are not showing you the labels...)

Teaching interests

I teach Intelligent Control and Cognitive Systems to both postgraduates and advanced undergraduates.  Again, see the links.
