Hi. I'm Nicolas Briot.

I'm PhD student in Computer Science at University of Montpellier. I work on Constraint Programming with Coconut team (LIRMM).

Here's all the stuff I do.

Constraint Programming and Precision Agriculture

Constraint Programming

"is a powerful paradigm for solving combinatorial search problems that draws on a wide range of techniques from artificial intelligence, operations research, algorithms, graph theory and elsewhere." (Rossi, F., Van Beek, P., & Walsh, T. (Eds.). (2006). Handbook of constraint programming. Elsevier)

Precision Agriculture

"is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. The interests are technical, economical and environmental." (Wikipedia)

Constraint Programming for Precision Agriculture

Define and manage quality zones implies logistics (and other) problems. During my thesis, I work on these problems as optimize the path of the machine in vine field, scheduling technician etc.
