I was giving this morning (March 7) a talk on my researches at the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM) for the Ph.D. student in Cognitive Computer Science, entitled “L’intelligence ambiante au service des personnes dépendantes” or if you prefer : ”The Ambient Intelligence at the service of dependant people”.
You can look at my slides at : http://prezi.com/fzky2afrlipe/seminaire_dic_7mars They are only in french !
I’m currently publishing a web survey to collect participant’s opinion on context aware recommender system for smartphones in smart urban spaces (or if you prefer … smart cities). You can fill the survey at :
It just take 15-20 minutes to fill, and it will help me and my team to develop new context aware recommender algorithms and systems.
After 5-6 years of post-graduate education between the Quebec and France, 1 year of Postdoc at CMU in Pittsburgh and 2 marvelous kids, I finally reach my goal : get a position as professor in computer science in a university in Quebec, the Télé-Université du Québec.
Sometime, it’s fun to remember all the path I followed to reach this goal and all the people (mostly my family …) asking when I would finally get a job (for a lot of them, doing research during a Ph.D. is not a job). I can officially say that at 31 years old, I have my first official job ! (internship and student job doesn’t count )
Ok, enough talk about that. Let me introduce this new website and blog. In that blog, you will find all the information about my research interests, projects, publications and topics I will write, from computer science to research in general, maybe a little bit about politic and surely some stuff about my next trips (conferences or not). You will probably notice several english grammatical errors in my future posts, I apologize, french being my first language, I’m still working to improve my english (even if I wrote several scientific papers in english). So, stay tune and don’t forget to submit comments !
