Mausam graduated with his PhD in 2007 and joined the Turing Center at the University of Washington as a Research Assistant Professor. His research explores several threads in artificial intelligence, including scaling probabilistic planning algorithms, large-scale information extraction over the Web, panlingual machine translation and enabling complex computation over crowd-sourced platforms. His PhD dissertation received honorable mention for the 2008 ICAPS Best Dissertation Award awarded to the best AI Planning and Scheduling dissertation of the two previous years. He had earlier received his B.Tech. from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi in 2001. For more information, click here.
