Professor Munoz-Avila receives
NSF Grant for AI research

Hector Munoz-Avila, professor of Computer Science & Engineering at Lehigh University, recently received a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant in the field of goal-driven autonomy (GDA). Munoz-Avila’s research focuses on the creation of adaptive and self-aware programs that are able to understand problems and mistakes and automatically seek solutions. GDA uses reinforcement learning and expectations, allowing the program to think ahead and learn from its mistakes. In the future, GDA programs could be used to allow machinery to, in essence, fix itself, or support the planning and execution of complicated projects.
