Professor at Freie Universität Berlin | Center for Machine Learning and Robotics
Tim Landgraf is Professor of Artificial & Collective Intelligence at Freie Universität Berlin where he teaches and studies different aspects of intelligent systems. In his interdisciplinary projects, he studies the individual and collective intelligence of model organisms, such as honeybees and fish with the help of modern computer science tools. He built the first working honeybee robot which was able to communicate with nestmates via the bee dance, or fish robots that integrate into live fish schools. He built a system to track all bees in a colony over their lifetimes to understand how information is processed by the bees’ social network. Tim also develops self-driving cars, that exchange electrical energy while moving and develops machine learning algorithms that learn without supervision. Tim is also active in the startup scene, as a mentor to several startups in Berlin and as a tech advisor to investors.
