Hello, my name is Nicolas Bredeche, I am Professeur des Universités (tenured professor) at the Sorbonne Université, in Paris, France.

Research topic:

  • I am interested in the mechanisms that allow collective systems to evolve, learn and adapt in open environments. I am concerned both with natural systems (using computer simulations to understand social behaviours) and artificial systems (designing algorithms for collective/swarm robotic systems). My research activity is at the crossroad of computer science, biology and robotics.


I am also co-head of the ANDROIDE Master program in computer science at UPMC (Artificial Intelligence, Operational Research, Decision, Interaction, Robotics and Agents).

Vous cherchez un stage, une thèse, un poste d'ingénieur, un post-doc?

Looking for an internship, a Ph.D., a post-doc position or a job as engineer?
