Emanuele Crosato, University of Sydney
I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at the University of Padua, and a Master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam. I am currently a PhD student in Complex Systems at the University of Sydney. My main scientific interest is cross-disciplinary: information processing in biological systems and natural phenomena, by means of Information Theory. My current PhD research, supervised by Prof. Mikhail Prokopenko and Dr. Joseph Lizier, investigates local dynamics of computation in real biological swarms (e.g. fish, birds, insects). We believe that these dynamics can reveal how computations are distributed in time and space, giving rise to emergent complex behavior. I am also interested in Artificial Life and particularly in adaptation, evolution and embodiment.
