About me

My name is Nicolas Verstaevel. I got my Ph.D from University of Toulouse in June 2016, focusing on self-organization of robotic devices through demonstrations,  and I’m currently temporary research and teaching assistant at Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France. I’m part of the Cooperative Multi-Agent Systems (SMAC) team of the Institute of Research in Informatic of Toulouse (IRIT).

At short term, my objective is to enrich, through post-doctoral positions, my experience while exploring new domains in Artificial Intelligence. At long term, I aspire to become assistant professor and focus my researches on complexity, self-organization, machine learning and multi-agent systems.

My current researches focus on enabling artificial systems to learn without explicit feedback and applying multi-agent technology to solve industrial problems.

Some keywords: multi-agent systems, robotic, machine learning, big data, problem solving and complex systems

I’ll be at ICAART 2017 as both speaker and session chair. I’ll present our paper entitled “Lifelong learning with Adaptive Multi-Agent Systems”

I am co-chair of the Second IEEE Workshop on Smart and Sustaible Cities :
