Research experience

2010 – now

Senior Research Fellow, Federal Research Center “Computer Science and Control” of Russian Academy of Sciences, Artificial Intelligence Research Institute, Moscow, Russia.

Cognitive modelling: proposed the models of a number of cognitive functions of consciousness based on sign-based world view, proposed a model of the sign and investigated procedures of the sign formation, proposed biologically inspired models of sign components: image, significance and personal meaning, proposed algorithms of role distribution in coalition of cognitive agents.

Maching learning and multi-agent systems: developed the composite logical method to extract cause-effect relationships, proposed neuromorphic algorithm of machine learning - heterarchical causal network.

Robotics: developed multilayer control system for coalition of cognive robots.
