Introduction to Artificial Intelligence*



Cogito Ergo Sum.

I am driven by my desire to learn about the mysteries behind the quintessence of thoughts and the world. Emulating thoughts and intelligence borne out of the framework offered by Computer Science gives rise to Algorithmic Robotics. My current research interests lie in motion planning, multi-agent systems, 3D terrain navigation, manipulation planning in clutters and automation techniques.



I did my Bachelors in Technology from National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, in Computer Science and Engineering in 2012. I have worked as a Software Engineer in Novell India Development Center from 2012-2013. I am currently enrolled in the graduate program in Department of Computer Science, under the supervision of Prof. Kostas Bekris.
