Tomer A

- Research Program Mentor

MS Master of Science


Any project involving scientific computing (e.g. simulation, data analysis; can be in a domain I'm familiar with like physics, or otherwise), AI (decision-making, neural networks, etc.), aerospace engineering (related to: orbital dynamics/satellites/space stuff, aeronautics/aircraft), Art (traditional or computer-driven)

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Intro to Decision Making Under Uncertainty

Decision making is the process of selecting the most appropriate action to take in a given state. Humans do this naturally, but for computers or robots, humans must write the programs that lead to their decisions. In this project, we will first learn to model a toy decision problem (such as a robot in a 2D grid-world, or which move to play in a game of chance), how to represent it in code, and then how to solve it. If time allows, you can then come up with your own decision making problem to solve!
