Octopus Robots Boosts Its AI Team For Poultry Robots
Known for being one of the pioneers of poultry robotics, and more specifically in terms of biosafety, Octopus Robots recruited Dr. Jérôme Leboeuf-Pasquier, Ph.D. in computer science (LIMSI-CNRS, Paris XI University, Orsay), creator of the Growing Functional Modules paradigm dedicated to the generation of intelligent controllers (concept of artificial brain).
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Jérôme Leboeuf-Pasquier has participated in a number of IT projects related to distributed architectures, intelligent control and real-time systems on behalf of public transport networks, parallel processing of satellite images for Matra MS2I, automation of the packaging line for Moët & Chandon.
Abroad, he has created and managed a service company dedicated to the implementation of solutions related to new technologies and integrated the University of Guadalajara (Mexico) as a teacher-researcher. The topics taught to students covered almost all Artificial Intelligence thematic : fuzzy logic, metaheuristics, genetic algorithm, predicate logic, neural networks, expert systems, functional programming, cellular automaton, classifiers…
The application of GFM led to the realization of a series of robots, including a humanoid with 27 servo-motors and an autonomous all-terrain vehicle.
His works formed the subject of about twenty publications in peer-reviewed journals.
In parallel, Jérôme Leboeuf-Pasquier directed 35 thesis projects, implementing various paradigms or metaheuristics of Artificial Intelligence facilitating the representation, classification, interpretation, evaluation or optimization of knowledge, for example: algorithms genetic to plan the production of an electric cable factory; ant colonies to allocate Kanban resources of a production line; likewise to calibrate the supply and demand of bus lines; fuzzy-neural logic to assess flood risk in urban areas; learning and decision trees to extract correlations in spatial databases ….
Concurrently, Octopus Robots recruited Carlos Fernando Ruiz Chávez, a talented senior engineer, Data Scientist Specialist (Automatic Learning and Information Technology Applied to the Geospatial Data Specialist).
The objective is to develop a data base specific to the livestock building from data provided by the robots of Octopus. This data can be integrated into food traceability systems secured by BLOCKCHAIN.
Carlos Fernando Ruiz Chávez might become the Head of the AI Research Center; Data; Blockchain of Mexico (OCTOCHAIN Project.) Whose Octopus Robots SA is preparing the formation and opening in the coming months.
The pair and their network of international experts bring unquestionable expertise at the cutting edge of AI.
The newly expanded team is further enhancing the Poultry robot AI to the point where it is ahead of its new Project Completion Schedule (PCS).
