Teaching overview:

  • giving presentations in English language at biggest international scientific conferences on computational intelligence,
  • reviewer at worldwide leading scientific journals and conferences, state of the art.
  • academic lecturer for courses:
  • leading practical work for Parallell and Distributed Computing, Computer Architecture, Programming I
    • my students learn to machine-level program the circuits, central processing units, and large scale computing architectures, and basics of programming
  • previous courses: System Administration, Heterogeneous Computer Systems, and Connectible Systems and Intelligent Services
    • students got to know how to administer heavy-traffic web farms, how to secure them, customize the services, and perform UNIX security audits,
    • my students developed distributed parallel games (e.g. AirHockey 3D multiplayer game, various card games, Applied Math Optimization with Evolutionary Algorithms),
    • I showed the students how to create intelligent services and present them as web service agents, they learn how to create intelligent summary extraction of PDF documents, and auto-generate scientific paper Turing-like tests.
  • leading a course project with Dravske elektrarne Maribor, Holding Slovenskih elektrarn for teaching them Linux system administration.
