I'm Filipe Mutz and I do research on robotics and artificial intelligence.

Since April, 2022, I am a professor in the department of informatics at the Federal University of Espírito Santo (UFES), Brazil. At UFES, I manage along with Prof. Maurice Barcellos da Costa and Prof. Roberta Lima Gomes the NCD, a program for digital inclusion of vulnerable communities. In October, 2022, I assumed a role as senior researcher at the Institute of Applied Computational Intelligence (I2CA). Since February, 2024, I am also Institutional Representative for the Brazilian Computer Society (Sociedade Brasileira de Computação - SBC) at the Federal University of Espírito Santo.
Before, from 2014 to April, 2022, I was a professor in the department of information systems and in the postgraduate program in applied computing at the Federal Institute of Espírito Santo (IFES), Brazil. From 2020 to 2022, I participated in IFES' productivity researcher program. From May, 2012, to November, 2013, I was a computer vision researcher at Mogai IT.
I am generally interested in robotics and artificial intelligence. My current focus is on applications of neural networks for medical image analysis. Previously, I worked on perception, localization, and mapping for self-driving cars, and reinforcement learning.
I received a B.Sc. in Computer Science, a M.Sc. in Informatics, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Federal University of Espírito Santo (UFES) in 2012, 2014, and 2019, respectively. During my Ph.D., I visited the Swiss AI Lab IDSIA for a year under supervision of Juergen Schmidhuber.
