Professor Adrian Pearce

Adrian researches automated planning and scheduling, and he has contributed to research on reasoning about actions within artificial intelligence. His research has improved the efficiency and robustness of a range of applications, including production scheduling, trusted autonomous systems for cognitive robotics, supply chain management, logistics and air traffic management. Adrian has made fundamental breakthroughs with his colleagues, which facilitate collaborative constraint and resource optimisation for autonomous systems and over complex supply chain networks. This involves satisfying constraints, such as resource or processing capacities, while meeting temporally extended goals, such as maintenance constraints.

Adrian is the theme leader in the research theme UPTAKE
