Howdy Bloggers

I'm Mark Carman. I come from Adelaide, Australia. I'm doing a Ph.D. in Trento, Italy. And I'm currently living and working in Los Angeles, California. Confusing hey. I'm in the doctoral consortium at AAAI and haven't introduced myself till now, because I just got back from a honeymoon in the south of Italy.... My PhD work is on learning source definitions for use in composing web services. If you want to know what that means, come up to at the conference and I'll be happy to tell you all about it. Today I gave a talk at the Workshop on Planning for Grid and Web Services. - I think people actually understood what I was talking about, so I was quite happy with how it went. For the rest of the day I've been listening to the presentations at the doctoral consortium. The talks were quite interesting. Seems like Reinforcement Learning is in fashion this year - four of the talks were somehow related to it! Below are a couple of photos I took: Note the size of the screen - I think it is the biggest I've ever seen! We're off for dinner at Sonoma Grill now, so I'll have to post comments on the talks later.....

Hi, Mark! I'm Paolo, from Trento as well. Strange world, isn't it?
I hope we meet at the conference. How long are you going to stay?
