Prof. Walterio Mayol-Cuevas (University of Bristol, United Kingdom)

Professor Walterio Mayol-Cuevas is member of the Computer Science Department of the University of Bristol. Obtained his PhD from the University of Oxford and his BSc from The National University of Mexico. His research with students and collaborators proposed some of the earliest versions of visual simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) and its applications to Robotics and Augmented Reality. These include flagship humanoid robots and early commercial applications of visual mapping for wearable computing. Most recent work includes novel concepts of human-robot interaction, fast Computer Vision methods for scene understanding and algorithms for novel visual sensors and machine learning applications to asses skill. Overall, he enjoys finding interesting problems and novel solutions to problems where humans and artificial systems are involved.
