Welcome to my homepage!

My name is Robert Nowotniak, I’m a computer scientist and a PhD candidate at The Faculty of Electrical, Electronic, Computer and Control Engineering, Technical University of Lodz (TUL), Poland. I’ve received the MSc degree in computer science from the Faculty of Technical Physics, Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, same University. My scientific specialization is artificial intelligence and software engineering. In my master’s thesis (in Polish), I’ve worked on the use of artificial intelligence evolutionary methods in the design of quantum algorithms. Currently, I’m admitted into a PhD program, and I’m working on a PhD dissertation concerning a new class of metaheuristics drawing their inspiration from both the biological evolution and unitary evolution of quantum systems.

On this page, I publish the results of my ongoing work, my recent scientific publications and speeches. My current scientific interests focus mainly on artificial intelligence, its theoretical analysis, implementation, applications, deployment and development of hybrid systems. Another major area of my scientific interest is quantum computing, which is an ongoing challenge and a valuable source of inspiration for many fields of contemporary technical science. On this website, I’ve also collected my old and unpublished works, such as fractals, cellular automata, IT security and various other projects related to science in general. I know well most of the modern, imperative, third-generation programming languages, including Ada95, C, C++, C#, PHP, Perl, Java, Python. The common element of most of my work is modelling reality and an attempt to deepen the understanding of exciting real-world phenomena (e.g. evolution, intelligence, self-organization, emergence, quantum systems) at their various levels of complexity.

In the past three years, I’ve been a delegate to the Assembly of TUL PhD Students’ Self-Government, where I was working as the vice-chairman of PhD Students Council.
