Name: Robin Bye Interests: My name is Robin T. Bye and I am an associate professor at the Ålesund University College (AAUC) in Norway. Apart from teaching classes in systems and control, intelligent systems, and 3D computer graphics, I am the co-supervisor of one PhD student and also supervise several bachelor students on their thesis topics. In addition, I do research in areas such as computational modelling and simulation of human movements as well as dynamic resource allocation.Whilst my main focus has been on neuroengineering and control theory, I have also emphasised computer engineering during my education. Recently I have taken an interest in geometric control through differential geometry. I believe that many of tomorrow's complex and nonlinear control problems will not be solvable with classical control methods but will require a fusion of modern control theory, the algorithmical perspective of artificial intelligence (AI), and differential geometry.
