Dr. Nikolaos Mavridis, PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Ass. Professor at New York University in Abu Dhabi, has taught, written about, researched, and built Intelligent Systems and Robots, since his early youth. He is the founder of IRML (the Interactive Robots and Media Lab), which achieved wide publicity for "Ibn Sina", the world's first Arabic-Language Android Robot, as well as "FaceBots", Microsoft-award-recipient Social Robots which access info and publish on FaceBook. His past work includes "Ripley", a language-learning robot with abilities comparable to those assessed by the token test, a test administered to 3-year-old children.

About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
