Tim Landgraf is Professor of Collective Intelligence and Biorobotics at Freie Universität Berlin where he works closely with probably the brightest students on the planet to understand complex biological systems. He started his studies in Berlin where he obtained his PhD degree with renowned neurobiologist Randolf Menzel and famous roboticist Raúl Rojas. He built the first working honeybee robot which was able to "talk" to honeybees. He became fascinated by both the individual and collective intelligence of bees and - thanks to a Fulbright fellowship - moved to California to study more honeybee biology with expert Kirk Visscher. Upon his return to Germany he established a junior research group, the Biorobotics Lab, to learn about the beauty of biological systems with modern tools such as robotics and machine learning. Last year he co-founded the Dahlem Center for Machine Learning and Robotics and currently develops ideas to apply bee-smarts to human "swarms" and self-driving cars.
