AI and Robotics

AI & Robotics

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has a long history in our department, and currently supports a very dynamic program of research and education. Our educational curriculum provides a broad range of courses including introductory AI, automated planning, cognitive modeling, commonsense reasoning, evolutionary computation, game theory, machine learning, multi-agent systems, natural language processing, and neural computation. The AI group has consistently ranked high in external national assessments: for example, in the US News ranking of best graduate schools, our AI program is ranked 9th among all universities and 6th among public universities.

Many of our former students have gone on to very high levels of achievement. Examples include Vipin Kumar (PhD 1982), Fellow of the AAAS, ACM, and IEEE; Qiang Yang (PhD 1989), Fellow of the IEEE; Naresh Gupta (PhD 1993), Senior Vice President at Adobe; Lee Spector (PhD 1992), Fellow of the ISGEC; Gary Flake (PhD 1993), Microsoft Distinguished Engineer and well known author of The Computational Beauty of Nature; Narendra Ahuja (PhD 1979), Fellow of the IEEE, AAAI , SPIE, and ACM; and Granger Sutton (PhD 1992), whose software was used in the first-ever assembly of the complete whole genome of a free-living organism, the Haemophilus influenzae genome.
