Professor of Computer Science, specialism in Machine Learning, at the School of Information Technology, Halmstad University. Appointed in 2006.
Thorsteinn Rögnvaldsson's interest for the subject area of artificial intelligence and machine learning began with a fascination for physics-based models relating to how the brain works. Although interest for the functions of the brain remains, his principal areas of research are now directed towards applications of intelligent systems such as in for example the car and vehicle industry.
Increased use for machine learning systems is a central driving force for Thorsteinn Rögnvaldsson's research. He is particularly interested in finding better algorithms, improved in the sense that they make fewer mistakes and can solve a task more quickly and with higher precision.
Thorsteinn Rögnvaldsson was born in 1963 in Reykjavik, Iceland but grew up in Lund. He studied Theoretical Physics at Lund University and completed his PhD at the same university in 1994. In 2003 he was appointed as Associate Professor with a specialism in Learning Systems at Halmstad University and from 2007 to date he has worked as chairman of the Research Committee for Engineering and Natural Sciences.
