Adrian Pearce

 

Professor in School of Computing and Information Systems

Researcher and innovator in planning and scheduling. My research has improved the efficiency and robustness of a range of applications including production planning for mining, supply chain optimization, robotics, logistics, air traffic management and autonomous systems.

Contributed deeply in research on reasoning about actions within the field of artificial intelligence. In conjunction with an excellent group of colleagues in the AI and Autonomy and optimisation group, we have made fundamental breakthroughs in the ability to perform collaborative planning and scheduling.

Our research group tackles optimization problems, including more efficient and productive supply chain management for agile mine scheduling.

My specialities include: Supply chain optimization, automated planning and scheduling; reasoning about action and change; optimisation in multi-agent systems; knowledge representation and reasoning; and artificial intelligence.
