  Boi Faltings

Prof. Faltings joined EPFL in 1987 as professor of Artificial Intelligence. He holds a Ph.D. degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a diploma from the ETH Zurich. His research has spanned different areas of intelligent systems linked to model-based reasoning. In particular, he has contributed to qualitative spatial reasoning, case-based reasoning (especially for design problems), and constraint satisfaction for design and logistics problems. His current work is oriented towards the development of interoperable intelligent agents based on the constraint satisfaction framework, including issues of user preference modeling and elicitation, distributed constraint solving and economic principles for incentive-compatibility.

In 1999, Prof. Faltings co-founded Iconomic Systems, a company that developed a new agent-based paradigm for travel e-commerce. Following the sale of Iconomic Systems to i:FAO, he served as chief scientist for i:FAO in 2001 and 2002.

Prof. Faltings has published more than 150 refereed papers on his work, and participates regularly in program committees of all major conferences in the field. He is also member of the editorial boards of the major journals, and associate editor of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR) and the Artificial Intelligence Journal. From 1996 to 1998, he served as head of the computer science department at EPFL.
