Ashish KapoorSr. Principal Researcher, Microsoft
Ashish Kapoor leads the Aerial Robotics and Informatics group at Microsoft, Redmond. Currently, his research focuses on building intelligent and autonomous flying agents that are safe and enable applications that can positively influence our society. The research builds upon cutting edge research in machine intelligence, robotics and human-centered computation in order to enable an entire fleet of flying robots that range from micro-UAVs to commercial jetliners. Various applications scenarios include Weather Sensing, Monitoring for Precision Agriculture, Safe Cyber-Physical Systems etc. Ashish received his PhD from MIT Media Laboratory in 2006.
Hava SiegelmannProgram manager, DARPA
Dr. Hava Siegelmann joined DARPA in July 2016 with the goal of developing programs that advance intelligence in computerized devices, focusing on life-long learning, context-aware adaptivity, and user-centered applications. Prior to joining DARPA, she directed the Biologically Inspired Neural and Dynamical Systems (BINDS) Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts. While at the University, she also served as a Core Member of the Neuroscience and Behavior Program. Her mathematical and computational studies of the brain, somatic cells, cognition, and intelligence depend on a multi-disciplinary approach that combines complexity science, information and learning theories, computational simulations, biology, and neural networks. A unifying theme of her work has been the study of time-dependent adaptive dynamical complex systems. One of her research goals involves further investigation of how an underlying architecture brings about the dynamics that evolve into intelligent behavior and how behavioral feedback from the dynamics proceeds toward adaptation in the architecture. Her research accomplishments include advancing the understanding of biologically-inspired computational systems, among them neural systems and genetic networks of organisms.

Have a great time Prague, the city that never sleeps
A unique capital where you can breathe centuries of history at every corner. We’ll take a tour to explore the sights, invite you to taste the best pivos (that’s beer in Czech) and bring you back to the present by clubbing with you the whole night!
Now the seat of the Czech Philharmonic, the Rudolfinum is a Neo-renaissance building associated with music and art since 1885 and only used for truly outstanding purposes. The comfort, acoustics, and design makes it the greatest venue in the whole of Europe and it’s available for us.
