Biography

My name is Michael Sioutis (Μιχαήλ Σιούτης in Greek) and, as of January 2023, I am a tenure-track Junior Professor of Hybrid Artificial Intelligence, affiliated with the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Montpellier, and the Laboratory of Computer Science, Robotics and Microelectronics of Montpellier. I will be working together with the Coconut team, and the rest of the lab, on the interplay between knowledge representation and machine learning, especially in the context of attaining spatiotemporally-informed AI frameworks.

Before returning to France, I was a Research Fellow (Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter in German) at the Faculty of Information Systems and Applied Computer Sciences of Otto-Friedrich-University Bamberg in Germany from 2020 to 2022, a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Computer Science of Aalto University in Finland during 2019, and a Postdoctoral Researcher at the School of Science and Technology of Örebro University in Sweden from May 2017 to December 2018.

In February 2017 I successfully defended my PhD Thesis, titled Algorithmic Contributions to Qualitative Constraint-based Spatial and Temporal Reasoning, and became a Doctor of Artois University in Computer Science. During my doctoral research I was advised by Professors Jean-François Condotta, Bertrand Mazure, and Yakoub Salhi.
