Petri Myllymäki obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science at
University of Helsinki, where he became a
Docent in computer science in 1999. Dr. Myllymäki is one of the
co-founders and the current leader of the Complex Systems Computation (CoSCo) research group,
and he has over 20 years of experience in research in the area of
intelligent systems. His current special research interests are
focused on Bayesian and information-theoretic modeling, in particular
with Bayesian networks and other probabilistic models. He has
been an editorial board member, program chair/committee member and reviewer
for numerous international scientific journals, conferences and organizations, and he
has published over 100 scientific articles in his research area. He is a co-founder of Ekahau Inc.,
Cloud'N'Sci Inc. and BayesIT Inc., and has
also been responsible for several applied research projects
with other companies including Nokia, Elisa, M-Brain, Kesko, Kone, StoraEnso, Space
Systems Finland/European Space Agency, ABB and AlmaMedia, and the industrial
co-operation has lead to a number of fielded applications and
patents. Dr. Myllymäki is a professor at the
