My motivation in research is curiosity ! And teaching is a nice way to try to understand better.
From my early years to current ones, I have been working on various topics, from programing languages, to computer music, to concurrent and distributed programming, to artificial intelligence, to multi-agent systems, to serious games.
I have been always interested in self-describing (reflexive) artefacts (software and systems) and self-adaptation. And personally, in theories about conscience. My personal experiments about this are through meditation.
These days, I am back to work in musical domain (generation of musical contents), with the benefit of my recent understanding of deep learning.
