Workshop Speakers

  • Mausam, IIT Delhi / Univ. of Washington
    Mausam is an Associate Professor of Computer Science department at IIT Delhi, and an affiliate faculty at University of Washington, Seattle. His research explores several threads in artificial intelligence, including scaling probabilistic planning algorithms, large-scale information extraction over the Web, and enabling complex computation over crowdsourced platforms. He received his PhD from University of Washington in 2007 and a B.Tech. from IIT Delhi in 2001. He was recently awarded the AAAI Senior Member status for his long-term participation in AAAI and distinction in the field of artificial intelligence.

  • Murray S. Campbell, IBM Research
    Murray Campbell is a Distinguished Research Staff Member at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY.  He was a member of the team that developed Deep Blue, which in 1997 became the first computer to defeat the human world chess champion in a match.  Campbell has worked in a variety of areas of Artificial Intelligence, including machine learning, planning and search, and his research is currently focused on end-to-end task-oriented dialog systems.  He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, and is an ACM Distinguished Scientist and a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.

  • Horst Samulowitz, IBM Research
    Horst Samulowitz received his Masters degree in 2003 from the RWTH Aachen (Germany) and his PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Toronto (Canada) in 2008. He was a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research (England) for 2 years and a researcher at NICTA and the University of Melbourne (Australia). Currently he is a research scientist in the Cognitive Computing Group at IBM Research (USA).
