Outstanding Researchers Recognized for Their Contributions to AI
Menlo Park, California — The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence has announced the 2003 Fellows. Each year since 1993, a small number of AI researchers are recognized by their peers for their unusual distinction in the profession and for their sustained contributions to the field of AI for a decade or more.
This year’s AAAI Fellows join a distinguished cadre of many of the leading researchers and practitioners in the field of AI (aaai.org/Awards/fellows.html). AAAI congratulates the following honorees:
- Subbarao Kambhampati, Arizona State University
For significant contributions to a unified theory of planning, its relation to constraint satisfaction, and development of varied speedup methods and heuristics.
- Craig A. Knoblock, University of Southern California
For significant contributions to planning and information integration, and the application of AI methods to complex domains.
- Daphne Koller, Stanford University
For significant contributions to integrating logic and probability, and development of methods for reasoning, learning, and decision-making under uncertainty.
- Gérard G. Medioni, University of Southern California
For significant contributions to computer vision, including algorithms for feature extraction, organization, and matching.
- Stuart M. Shieber, Harvard University
For significant contributions to the foundations of computational linguistics, to graphical and spoken-language interfaces, and to open scientific publishing.
- Moshe Y. Vardi, Rice University
For significant contributions to the development of automated-reasoning techniques and to the development of logic as a unifying foundational framework and a tool for modeling computational systems.
This year’s recipients will be honored at a dinner and ceremony at the AAAI-04 Conference in San Jose, California.
