Martin Peniak shares his incredible life path from a young man with no clear future to one of the pioneers in parallel processing
Martin Peniak works in the area of parallel programming. He has worked for the European Space Agency and also in the NVIDIA research centre in Sillicon Valley. During his post-doctoral studies at university in Plymouth, he trained the humanoid robot iCub and was the first to apply parallel programming in the field of cognitive robotics. Currently, Martin works for Cortexica at Imperial College in London where he is creating a biologically inspired system for visual searching. In his free time, he likes to play ethnic musical instruments and he take pictures of the universe.
What I like about Martin is that he can easily and interestingly explain scientific topics, such as parallel programming or cognitive robotics, to everyone. He has captivated the attention of many foreign scientists and so I am delighted that we can introduce him to the Slovak audience as well. (Monika Pohlová)
