Salah Talamali joins the DiODe team beginning of May 2017 to investigate heterogeneities in collective decision making. His PhD project will involve the development of decision making algorithms and their implementation on the Kilobot platform, bringing the state of the art of artificial decision making closer to studying real-world scenarios using a swarm of robots.
Chelsea Sabo and Alex Cope who were previously working on the Green Brain project have joined the DiODe project to help building a smart arena for the 900 Kilobots we have at Sheffield Robotics.
Aldo Encarnacion joined the DiODe team to work on the mathematical modelling of cellular decision making. The main part of his PhD project will involve the development of a theory that understands metabolic pathways in terms of decision making strategies.
The DiODe project is offering a PhD studentship, with a closing deadline of February 2nd. For full details including application process please visit this site.
The DiODe project officially starts today, and will be based in Sheffield Robotics for its 5-year duration.
