I received the ''Prix Le Monde de la Recherche Universitaire'' 2015 for my thesis work. Each year, this price is awarded to 5 young French scientists across all fields of science. Cédric Villani was chairing the jury.
During my Phd studies, I investigated how a machine can be taught a new task from unlabeled human instructions, which is without knowing beforehand how to associate the human communicative signals with their meanings. I applied my work in the field of brain machine interfaces.
A book featuring a short summary of each laureate will be published by the end of 2016.
