Loizos Michael


Assistant Professor, Open University of Cyprus
Director of the Computational Cognition Lab
Loizos Michael is an Assistant Professor at Open University of Cyprus, where he founded and directs the Computational Cognition Lab. He was educated at University of Cyprus, where he received a B.Sc. in Computer Science with a minor degree in Mathematics. He continued his education at Harvard University, where he received an M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in Computer Science.
His research focuses on the principled study of cognitive processes associated with individual or collective intelligence - such as learning, reasoning, sensing, communication, cooperation - and how those are used by humans and other organisms in everyday life. Emphasis is placed on the development of computational models for various aspects of cognitive processes, and the analysis of the formal implications that such models have. This computational view of cognition is complemented by simulations, real‐world experiments, and psychological studies, designed to validate the proposed models and to identify features thereof that warrant further study.
