Qualification à diriger des recherche in Computer Science – UPMC (1989). I am Director of Research (Directeur de recherche de 1ère classe) at CNRS (Centre Nacional de la Recherche Scientifique, France). I am a Researcher at Laboratoire d´Informatique de Paris 6 (LIP6) and also a Permanent Visiting Professor at the Department of Computing from the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio).

I supervised or co-supervised more than 25 doctoral students (including 6 Brazilians). I am the author or co-author of more than 150 scientific publications. I edited or co-edited 10 books and special issues of scientific journals. I participated in 9 scientific journal committees and more than 100 scientific conference committees. I participated in more than 100 doctoral boards. I have more than 70 scientific publications co-authored with Brazilian researchers. I am interested in the convergence of programming, artificial intelligence and distributed systems, such as the design of multi-agent collaborative systems. I recently became interested in musical computing again: the use of deep learning for music generation. My most complete curriculum (in French) is:
