Dr. Lior Noy
Lecturer in The School of Computer Science and Information Systems
Lior Noy studies creative interactions using computational tools. He holds a PhD in computer science from the Weizmann Institute of Science, with a background in cognitive psychology, computational neuroscience, and robotics. He is also a performer and teacher in Playback Theatre, an improvisation form based on real-life stories. He was the co-founder of the Theatre Lab at Weizmann Institute, a hub of research at the meeting point of physics, behavioral science and the performing arts. His current research interests include the development of computational paradigms for studying creative exploration; synchronization in dyadic exploration and creative human-agent interactions. A long-term goal of these studies is the development of a computational theory of creative interactions.
