What's special about Carnegie Mellon?
My research goal is to improve on the current state of scientific,
engineering, and other professional reasoning by developing
characterizable methods and interactive software that partially
automate high-end tasks of discovery. In short: Better discovery of
new, interesting knowledge. But science took us to the moon, it cures
disease, etc. What does it mean to improve
Important dual aspects of this research program are to contribute to
both basic computer science (creativity as an ill-understood phenomenon)
and scientific applications. The collaborative application of current tools,
as well as explorations of new tasks, are welcome.
I co-founded Vivisimo Inc. in
June 2000 and served as its CEO for nine years and its chairman for
twelve, until IBM acquired Vivisimo in May 2012.
