Summary

Interests & competencies:

Main Projects:

  • FIDIS, NoE, (Future of Identity in the Information Society).

    • Workpackage leader: The Identity of Identity. (defining the identity concepts)
    • My focus is also about identity in the social web (and on the web 2.0).
    • In this context, I created several social platforms suc as :

  • AtGentive (Attentive Agents for Collaborative Learners), coordinator.

    • prototype: AtGentNet is a next generation (Web 2.0 / Web 3.0) virtual community platform.
    • Wiki: AtGentive Wiki.
    • This project was successfully completed.

Other Projects: CareerGuide, CALT Encyclopedia, K-InCA
Completed Projects: LIP, EdComNet, VERDI, Ontologging, ECAMP, ...
Very old projects (1993-...): MicroWorlds (The cognitive representation of different domains)

Favourite quotes

  • Never give up. Never surrender

  • Chance favors the prepared mind.

    • Louis Pasteur
  • And you really believe that just because you publish children's books, people are going to care about my reputation? You can have pictures of me wearing nipple rings, butt-fucking Captain Kangaroo. The only thing they care about is the stock and whether that stock is up or down!

  • Meanwhile, the poor Babel fish, by effectively removing all barriers to communication between different races and cultures, has caused more and bloodier wars than anything else in the history of creation.

  • I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

    • Roy Batty (The leader of the Nexus-6 replicants), in Blade Runner
  • There's no news like bad news

  • about complexity: “There are 10 kinds of people, those who understand binary, and those who don’t”
  • about trust: "Trust in haste, regret at leisure" and "Who can you Trust?" (posters)

    • Sam Lowry says "Trust me Jack"; in the background a poster "Who can you Trust?"
    • Brazil, Terry Gilliams
  • about negotiation:

  • If you put three Jews/Lawyers/Economists/... together in a room, you'll end up with four different opinions

    • Or the difficulty to come to an agreement

Profile collapse

Profile

Thierry Nabeth has been working at INSEAD as a researcher since 1993, related to the application of advanced information technologies (in particular agent enhanced, personalized, collaborative digital environments and knowledge management systems) to support new forms of learning (experiential learning, learning communities, human factors and knowledge dissemination), and new models of organisations (agile, distributed and knowledge intensive organisations).
His work is in particular focussed in investigation of the next generation of agent enhanced collaborative platforms supporting the knowledge exchange in communities, both from a technical perspective (what are the mechanisms supporting and stimulating collaboration), usage perspective (how to translate this in term of user’s experience) and sociological perspective (what motivate users participation).

Recent fields of research included the application of Web 2.0 for enterprise collaboration as well as the support of attention in a social context. More specifically, his research includes: very flexible and lively "information architectures" (following some of the Web 2.0 principles), how can artificial agents be used in the context of digital social environment (Wikis and Blogs, online social networking, virtual community systems, collaborative learning systems, multi-users virtual reality systems) to design systems that are more personalized (covering deep user modelling aspects such as style or motivation), decentralized (relying on decentralised control and principle of emergence), active (actively supporting the work processes), and supportive of the social process (support for trust creation, reputation building, group forming, etc).

Thierry Nabeth is or has been involved in a variety of European research projects related to the design of intelligent learning systems, advanced knowledge management systems. For instance, he is the genitor and the coordinator of the AtGentive project, a STREP European project investigating the support of attention in agent enhanced e-learning systems. Thierry Nabeth is also a workpackage leader in the FIDIS (Future of Identity in the Information Society) Network of Excellence, where he is the main person responsible for the elaboration of the FIDIS Identity Wiki, aiming at the definition of the concept of Identity in the consortium. He is also involved in several projects related to the management of competence, such as the Integrated Project TenCompetence or Comenius project CareerGuide.

Before joining INSEAD in 1993, Thierry Nabeth worked for several years at Bull Systems in the field of Computer Aided Engineering, and at Alcatel in the field of object oriented technologies (methodologies, persistence, distribution, etc) and Artificial Intelligence (constraint propagation, DAI). He holds a Master in Artificial Intelligence (DEA) from University Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris 6, a Master in Management (DESS) from University Pantheon Sorbonne, Paris 1, and a Bachelor of Applied Mathematics (Maitrise) from University Lyon 1. His master’s dissertation (in 1990) in AI was related to the use of constraint propagation in an agent-based architecture for the resolution of a combinatorial problem (in the context of firmware memory allocation problems in a processor).
