Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Machine learning
  • Programming language

His primary scientific interests are in Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Markov decision process, Data mining and Probabilistic logic. His study ties his expertise on Pattern recognition together with the subject of Artificial intelligence. His Machine learning research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Bayesian probability, Heuristics, Heuristic and Hindsight bias.

His Markov decision process research integrates issues from Domain, Control and Mixture model. His research in the fields of Anomaly detection overlaps with other disciplines such as Anomaly. In his study, Language bias and Key is strongly linked to Mathematical optimization, which falls under the umbrella field of Probabilistic logic.

His most cited work include:

  • FF-Replan: a baseline for probabilistic planning (216 citations)
  • Multi-task reinforcement learning: a hierarchical Bayesian approach (202 citations)
  • UCT for tactical assault planning in real-time strategy games (144 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Reinforcement learning, Mathematical optimization and Data mining. Alan Fern focuses mostly in the field of Artificial intelligence, narrowing it down to topics relating to Heuristics and, in certain cases, Heuristic. His research integrates issues of Beam search and Bayesian probability in his study of Machine learning.

The various areas that Alan Fern examines in his Reinforcement learning study include Robot, Human–computer interaction, Adaptation and Control. In his work, Domain is strongly intertwined with Task, which is a subfield of Human–computer interaction. Alan Fern works mostly in the field of Mathematical optimization, limiting it down to topics relating to Markov decision process and, in certain cases, Theoretical computer science, as a part of the same area of interest.
