Research Scientist, Knowledge Representation, Intelligent Systems Lab, Future Concepts Division
Wiktor Piotrowski is a Research Scientist and a member of PARC’s Knowledge Representation area. His research interests lie in automated planning & scheduling, artificial intelligence, heuristic search, and systems modelling. His current research primarily focuses on building novelty-aware adaptive agents operating in open worlds, modelling and solving problems set in hybrid (mixed discrete/continuous) systems, and developing planning-based system reconfiguration algorithms.
Immediately prior to joining PARC, Wiktor was a Research Associate at the Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge working on improving aircraft design processes, and a College Research Associate at Clare College, University of Cambridge. He has also held a research position at the European Space Agency, and software development positions at King’s College London as well as Royal Holloway, University of London.
Dr. Piotrowski earned his Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence from King’s College London, on the topic of Heuristic Planning in Hybrid Systems. He holds an M.Sc. in Computing Science from University of Glasgow, and a B.Sc. in Computer Science from University of Strathclyde.
