Dr. Prashant Doshi
Director, THINC Lab
THINC lab is located in the Boyd Graduate Studies Research Center in the southern part of the UGA campus. Currently, more than 10 graduate students including doctoral and masters students are conducting research in the lab. Research conducted in the lab has been funded by grants from the Air Force and Army Research Offices, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health and the industry.
Optima+ is THINC lab's automated ontology alignment tool that utilizes an iterative EM based algorithm for aligning ontologies. It uses block-coordinate descent to speed up the iterations and converge to an alignment optima. In the most recent ontology alignment benchmark, OAEI 2012, Optima+ tied second in the important conference track. Research on Optima has been published in AAAI, ICSC and the Journal of Web Semantics. [Learn more..]

[11/27/13] We are looking for a postdoctoral associate in the areas of agent modeling and multiagent decision making to start immediately. Please get in touch with Prof. Doshi (pdoshi [at] cs [dot] uga [dot] edu) for more details.
[11/25/13] UGA’s Faculty of Robotics whose founding director is Prof. Doshi are working to significantly advance the fundamental science and engineering involved in creating the next generation of intelligent machines. A video of the Faculty’s activities is currently featured on the UGA Research Blog.
[09/27/13] Prof. Doshi visited the Institute for Creative Technologies at USC and gave a hosted talk on compressing agent model spaces and model human strategic behavior.
[08/22/13] Prof. Doshi receives a 3-year grant from the Office of Naval Research. The grant will facilitate investigations of compressing mental model spaces in multiagent systems, which has broad applications toward designing intelligent autonomous systems.
