Ulas Bardak's Research
I was a Ph.D. student in Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science. After my undergraduate studies (which I also completed at Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science in 2001) I was accepted into the Language Technologies Institute in the School of Computer Science, getting my M.S. degree in 2003. I have officially completed my degree in August 2007.
My thesis work, was on the elicitation of uncertain information in order to aid optimization. You can see my thesis proposal titled "Information Elicitation in Scheduling Problems" in March 2006. My advisors are Jaime G. Carbonell and Eugene Fink. My thesis committee was made up of Jaime G. Carbonell (chair), Eugene Fink, Stephen F. Smith, and Sven Koenig from the University of Southern California.
During my Ph.D. I was a part of the RADAR project, working in the Radar Space-Time Group. The sub-lead of this group, Eugene Fink, has a detailed page explaining the project and the Space-Time Group in particular. My main focus in this project was the elicitation of unknown information but I am responsible for maintaining the system and implementing the so called "plumbing" between the different submodules as well.
Recently, I worked at SECOM Intelligent Systems Lab trying to improve the quality of produced schedules in our scheduling system through interaction with the user. You can find more information about the project here.
