This talk by Amy Loutfi will focus on her perspectives of an engineer who has journeyed into the field of research and Artificial Intelligence. She will briefly outline the core of her research area on machine perception and interaction and highlight how her experience as an engineer has lifted her ability to perform both applied but also basic research in AI. She will also lift some of the general challenges of staying in academia, and the challenges and opportunities for women working in male-dominated technical fields.
Amy Loutfi graduated as an electrical engineer from the University of New Brunswick in Canada in 2001. She has a PhD in computer science from Örebro University 2006. Today she leads a research lab on Machine Perception and Interaction at the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems at Örebro University. She is also the pro-vice-chancellor at the University responsible for Artificial Intelligence.
The seminar is open to anyone with an interest in female role models within academia - especially from Chalmers, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Sahlgrenska Academy, Gothenburg University, Borås University, and MedTech West.
WiSE – Women in Science – aims to create a supportive network for young female researchers during their academic career. WiSE is a joint project between MedTech West and the department of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology.
