Brief Bio
Kurosh Madani is graduated in fundamental physics in June 1985 from PARIS 7 – Jussieu University. He received his MSc. in Microelectronics and chip architecture from University PARIS 11 (PARIS-SUD), Orsay, France, in September 1986. Received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from University PARIS 11 (PARIS-SUD), Orsay, France, in February 1990. In 1995, he received the DHDR Doctor Hab. degree (senior research doctorate degree) from University PARIS 12 – Val de Marne. He works as Chair Professor in Electrical Engineering of Senart-FB Institute of Technology of University PARIS-EST Creteil (UPEC), France. From 1992 to 2000 he has been creator and head of DRN (Neural Networks Division) research group. From 2001 to 2004 he has been head of Intelligence in Instrumentation and Systems Laboratory (I2S / JE 2353) of UPEC. Co-creator of Images, Signals and Intelligent Systems Laboratory (LISSI / EA 3956) of UPEC in 2005, head of Intelligent Machines & Systems” research team of LISSI, he is also Vice-director of this laboratory. He has worked on both digital and analog implementation of massively parallel processors arrays for image processing, electro-optical random number generation, and both analog and digital Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) implementation. Author and coauthor of more than 250 publications (in international journals, books, conferences’ and symposiums’ proceedings), he has been regularly invited as key-note and invited lecture by international conferences and symposiums. His current research interests include: - Complex structures and behaviors modeling, - self-organizing, modular and hybrid neural based information processing systems and their real-world and industrial applications, - humanoid and collective robotics - intelligent fault detection and diagnosis systems. Member of IEEE, permanent member of “Awareness Science and Technology” technical committee of IEEE-SMC and member of ACM, since 1996 he is a life-member (elected Academician) of International Informatization Academy. In 1997, he was also elected as permanent Academician (life-member) of International Academy of Technological Cybernetics.


Theoretical, applicative and technological challenges, emanating from nowadays' industrial, socioeconomic or environment needs, open every day new dilemmas to solved and new challenges to defeat. Bio-inspired Artificial Intelligence and related topic have shown its astounding potential in overcoming the above-mentioned needs. It is a fact and at the same time a great pleasure to notice that the ever-increasing interest of both confirmed and young researchers on this relatively juvenile science, upholds a reach multidisciplinary synergy between a large number of scientific communities making conceivable a forthcoming emergence of viable solutions to these real-world complex challenges.
ANNIIP takes part in appealing intellectual dynamics created around bio-inspired Artificial Intelligence by offering a privileged space to refit and exchange the knowledge about state of the art and further theoretical advances, new experimental discoveries and novel technological improvements in this promising area. The goal is to bring together different representative actors (from academia, industry, government agencies, etc...) to exchange ideas, to debate divergences and to construct convergences around these propitious concepts.
