Angela Faragasso, University of Tokyo, Japan
Angela Faragasso research activities involve different fields of robotics applications, such as medical, rescue and automation. What has always been a constant in her research, is the use of image processing algorithms to perform autonomous control or to understand properties of objects in the environment, i.e. stiffness, in real-time. Additional research involves hybrid control, intelligent construction systems and bio-inspired robotics.
Manuela Chessa, University of Genoa
Manuela Chessa is Assistant Professor in Computer Science at Dept. of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics, and Systems Engineering of the University of Genoa, Italy. Her research interests are focused on the study of biological and artificial vision systems, on the development of bioinspired models, of natural human-machine interfaces based on virtual, augmented and mixed reality, and on the perceptual and cognitive aspects of interaction in VR and AR.
Fabio Solari, University of Genoa
Fabio Solari is Associate Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics, and Systems Engineering at University of Genoa (Italy). His research activity concerns computational models of visual perception, the design of bio-inspired artificial vision systems, the study of perceptual effects of virtual and augmented reality systems and the development of natural human-computer interactions in mixed reality.
David Rudrauf, University of Geneva, Switzerland
David Rudrauf, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Geneva, and a member of the Swiss Center for Affective Science (CISA) and Centre Universitaire d’Informatique (CUI). He is the Director of the Laboratory of Multimodal Modelling of Emotion and Feeling on Campus Biotech in Geneva, and concentrates his research on computational modelling of psychology, combined with models of artificial agents and virtual humans in virtual reality and robotics, to study normal and pathological human behaviours.
