In my research group, we are interested in developing efficient search methods for hard problems. Many of our algorithms use all the three main ingredients of modern heuristic search methods: search, knowledge, and randomized simulations. Our two main application areas are games, especially Go, and planning.
Our group is currently working on these topics.
These are good research topics for me, but no one in my group is actively working on these topics right now. If you have an interest in one of those topics, please talk to me.
