[Distinguished Lecture Series] Prof. Milind Tambe gave a talk about AI for Social Good: Learning and Planning in the End-to-End, Data-to-Deployment Pipeline

We were pleased to receive prof. Tambe's talk about their amazing work on AI for Social Good.

Abstract: With the maturing of AI and multiagent systems research, we have a tremendous opportunity to direct these advances towards addressing complex societal problems. I will focus on the problems of public safety and security, wildlife conservation and public health in low-resource communities, and present research advances in multiagent systems to address one key cross-cutting challenge: how to strategically deploy our limited intervention resources in these problem domains. I will discuss the importance of conducting this research via building the full data to field deployment end-to-end pipeline rather than just building machine learning or planning components in isolation. Results from our deployments from around the world show concrete improvements over the state of the art. In pushing this research agenda, we believe AI can indeed play an important role in fighting social injustice and improving society.

Bio: Milind Tambe is Helen N. and Emmett H. Jones Professor in Engineering at the University of Southern California(USC) and the Founding Co-Director of CAIS, the USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society, where his research focuses on advancing AI and multiagent systems research for Social Good. He is recipient of the IJCAI (International Joint Conference on AI) John McCarthy Award, ACM/SIGAI Autonomous Agents Research Award from AAMAS (Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems Conference), AAAI (Association for Advancement of Artificial Intelligence) Robert S Engelmore Memorial Lecture award, INFORMS Wagner prize, the Rist Prize of the Military Operations Research Society, the Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation Homeland security award, International Foundation for Agents and Multiagent Systems influential paper award; he is a fellow of AAAI and ACM. He has also received meritorious Commendation from the US Coast Guard and LA Airport Police, and Certificate of Appreciation from US Federal Air Marshals Service for pioneering real-world deployments of security games. Prof. Tambe has also co-founded a company based on his research, Avata Intelligence , where he serves as the director of research. Prof. Tambe received his Ph.D. from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.

GAIPS @ 14th Annual ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human Robot Interaction (HRI) in Daegu, South Korea

 

GAIPS team was well-represented at the HRI Conference: Ana Paiva gave two keynotes in two different workshops; Patrícia Alves-Oliveria organized one workshop and presented a workshop paper; Filipa was accepted as an HRI Pioneer and presented her poster; Raquel Oliveira and Filipa Correia presented two full-papers; a video of a project from Social Robotics course was part of the Video Competition, and Patrícia was invited to present her most recent journal paper accepted at the HRI. Amazing work!
