Seminar Series


This seminar series brings presentations on research and pedagogy to a broad audience within the School of Computer Science. The series is particularly beneficial to MSc/PhD students, postdocs, early and late researchers as it presents the opportunity to discuss and debate new findings in computer science, games, imaging, healthcare, brain science, robotics and autonomous systems, machine learning and their applications to all aspects of science in a collegial and open setting. The seminars are open to the general public and free of charge. All are welcome, booking is not required and anyone wishing to attend need only turn up. For any questions, please contact Dr Vassilis Cutsuridis at

Past events

A putative role of Neurofeedback in canonical remoulding of the neural representation of self during sleep
Dr Andreas A Ioannides, CEO of AAI Scientific Cultural Services Ltd & Chief Scientist of AAISCS’s Laboratory for Human Brain Dynamics (Cyprus)
Watch Now
The lecture will describe the distinct output produced in two independent investigations, one on neurofeedback (NF) and the other on sleep.

On the Journey to Measure Cognitive-Motor Dissociation – What Can Portable Imaging Tell Us?
Dr Anirban Dutta, School of Engineering, UoL
Watch Now
Searching for cognitive abilities in patients with severe brain injury can be difficult because patients must be sufficiently aroused and able to mobilize motor function to show that they can follow commands.

Robots in Contact operations: from technological process to Human-Robot Cooperation
Dr Alexandr Klimchik, School of Computer Science, UoL
Watch Now
Robot-manipulators were designed to replace humans in the tedious repetitive tasks. Latter we came to an idea that they can be used for much wide spectrum of tasks, including contact operations and cooperation with a human.

Technology, attentional control, and the impact on human brain plasticity
Dr Julia Foecker, School of Psychology (UoL)
8 February, 2pm
Technology development and use is a fundamental dimension of human experience. Recent methodological developments in neuroscience have allowed us to understand how exposure to new technologies ( games) affects the brain and our ability to focus on task-relevant information while ignoring distractors. In this talk, I will present different methodological frameworks which can be applied in order to improve attentional control.

Working Toward Human-Robot Symbiosi
Dr Francois Michaud, University of Sherbrooke (Canada)
1 February, 2pm
Watch Now
Human-robot symbiosis implies developing robotic systems that can collaborate with humans in open and ‘messy’ conditions, meaning unpredictable real-life settings, such as those found in assistive healthcare and work environments.

Face-to-face conversation with socially intelligent robots
Dr Mary Ellen Foster, University of Glasgow
26 January, 11am
Watch Now
When humans talk to each other face-to-face, they use their voices, faces, and bodies together in a rich, multimodal, continuous, interactive process.

Application of machine learning techniques in intelligent crop management
Dr Miao Yu, School of Computer Science (UoL)
18 January, 2pm
Watch Now
Nowadays, machine learning, especially deep learning techniques have been exploited in all walks of life, especially in some traditional non-technical areas such as agriculture. In this talk, I will introduce the exploitations of some modern biophysical models, machine learning models, deep learning models and model fusion approaches for tomato/strawberry yield prediction.

Computational aspects of neural plasticity in aging, sleep physiology, motor rehabilitation and language mapping
Dr Christos Frantzidis, School of Computer Science (UoL)
7 December, 2pm
Watch Now
This talk will discuss my research efforts during the last decade. During its first part, I will discuss how physical and cognitive training could induce neuroplasticity changes in the mature human brain.

Future Challenges for Sellafield Ltd
Dr Melissa Willis, Head of Robotics and AI at Sellafield Ltd
16 November, 2pm
Sellafield Ltd has lifetime plan of over 100 years to remediate and decommission the site. The history of the site spans from a munitions legacy, civil nuclear power generation, reprocessing and the safe secure storage of nuclear waste and materials.
