Dr. Haris Dindo
Research Scientist and Assistant Professor,
Computer Science Engineering (DINFO),
University of Palermo, Italy.
Haris is investigating applications of advanced forms of social learning and verbal interaction in robotics. His work is focused on developing new computational and architectural models, inspired by recent findings in neurology (mirror neurons) and cognitive sciences (theory of mind), for advanced social interactions in artificial agents. It is an interdisciplinary research, with contributions ranging from behavioral and cognitive sciences, to neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and robotics.
His ultimate goal is to develop a robotic system which can learn behaviors through observation and imitation, acquire a language through its own experience, and engage in complex interaction with humans.
Haris coauthored A Posture Sequence Learning System for an Anthropomorphic Robotic Hand, A Cognitive Architecture for Robotic Hand Posture Learning, Damages of digitized historical images as objects for content based applications, Representation, Recognition and Generation of Actions in the context of Imitation Learning, People Tracking and Posture Recognition for Human-Robot Interaction, and Anchoring by Imitation Learning in Conceptual Spaces.

Haris earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Palermo in 2007, with the doctoral dissertation “Cognitive Imitation in Robotic Systems”. Read his LinkedIn profile.
