Dr. Amy Loutfi

Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Artificial Intelligence
Professor in Information Technology
Örebro University, Sweden


With a focus on machine perception, Amy Loutfi received here Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2006. As Head of the AASS Machine Perception and Interaction Lab, she has continued researching how sensors can be integrated onto robotic platforms and how robotic systems can use sensing and perception to interact with humans and solve a range of problems. Collaborating with industry and the public sector, her work currently includes the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods to interpret sensor data in human-robot interactions involving fully autonomous and teleoperated robots.


In addition to her research, Amy is a leader on strategic issues in artificial intelligence for Sweden. She is co-director of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program and is involved in both AI Sweden and AI Competence of Sweden. She is also part of Sweden’s Restart Commission with a focus digitalization and where the mandate includes the development a legal framework for the use of AI. She takes on these initiatives as part of her role as Pro-Vice-Chancellor for AI at Örebro University. We’re very happy to include Amy as part of the Ingenuity Labs Advisory Board.
