Ryad B. Benosman is a full Professor at both the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Carnegie Mellon University and Sorbonne Universitas where he does research at the intersection of robotics, computer vision and neuroscience. Specifically, he investigates the use of standard and neuromorphic cameras to enable autonomous, agile robotics, brain-machine interfaces focusing on retina prosthetics, optogenetics stimulation and recently visual cortex stimulation. Ryad did his PhD in robotics and computer vision at University of Pierre and Marie Curie after studying pure and applied mathematics. He is a pioneer and a leading researcher in the field of event based neuromorphic computer vision. His lab developed the ATIS neuromorphic camera. He has authored more than 200 papers, 60 of which are considered to provide the foundations of neuromorphic computer vision. He also founded several companies such as Prophesse (formerly Chronocam) the leading company in event-based vision, Pixium Vision (retina prosthetics), Chronolife (eHealth) and more recently Brainiac (neural processor computer).
