Jeremy Pitt is Reader in Intelligent Systems in the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London, where he is also Deputy Head of the Intelligent Systems & Networks Group. His research interests focus on developing formal models of social processes using computational logic, and their application to self-organisation in multi-agent systems (for intelligent networks and distributed computing) and in socio-technical systems (for e.g. community energy systems, knowledge commons and shared living spaces). He is currently working on ideas for computational sustainability relating to algorithmic and polycentric governance, collective attention and computational justice.
He also has an strong interest in the social impact of technology, and has edited two recent books, This Pervasive Day (IC Press, 2012) on pervasive computing and The Computer After Me (IC Press, 2014) on awareness and self-awareness in autonomic systems. He has been an investigator on more than 30 national and European research projects and has published more than 150 articles in journals and conferences. He is a Senior Member of the ACM, a Fellow of the BCS, and a Fellow of the IET; he is also an Associate Editor of ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems (TAAS) and an Associate Editor of IEEE Technology and Society Magazine.
