About Me

I am a PhD. Student in Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Computer Science at the University of Sao Paulo. Currently I am finishing my thesis on Automated Planning. Automated Planing is the reasoned side of acting, as opposed to the engineering of robotics. I am also interested in Data, and in Entrepreneurship. I like to see at tables and extract information.

Education

University of Sao Paulo

PhD Student Since August 2012

Ph.D. Program at the University of São Paulo in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence. Automated Planning. Planning is the reasoning side of acting. Classical planning is the area of Artificial Intelligence that is interested in reach a goal, anticipating the effects of the actions. However classical planning is not realistic since it makes some assumptions about the world. In particular, it assumes that the world is completely observable. On the other hand, contingency planning has to do with partial observations and sensing, a more realistic approach. In my PhD I’m working in developing new algorithms and techniques to solve more efficiently problems of this kind.
