Currently (fall 2017) on leave at Robert Gordon University, Smart Information Systems Research Group.

Professor of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence in the Department of Computer Science (IDI), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
Member of the Data and Artificial Intelligence Group.

My main research area is artificial intelligence methods for decision-support systems, with a focus on interactive problem solving and experiential learning in knowledge-based systems. The emphasis is on representing and utilizing knowledge that captures the semantics and pragmatics of real-world problem solving settings. Special fields of interest, and topics for students, are case-based reasoning, knowledge level architectures, ontologies, knowledge modeling/representation, combined reasoning methods, and AI-related aspects of cognitive science and philosophy. Type of applications focused are in intelligent decision support, knowledge discovery from data, computer-assisted learning/tutoring, and knowledge management. Particular application areas are oil well drilling, medical decision making, and fish farming.

You may want to take a look at a list of selected publications. Extended information is available in my summarized CV.

I have a Ph.D. from University of Trondheim, Norwegian Institute of Technology, Department of Computer Systems and Telematics. I have also spent longer periods as an employee or visitor in the AI labs at the University of Texas, Austin (1987-88), Free University of Brussels, VUB (1991-92, mainly on the KADS-II project), the Institut d'Investigació en Intel.ligència Artificial (IIIA), Barcelona (2001-2002), University of Auckland (Fall 2012), and Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 (Spring 2013).

This year's CBR conference, ICCBR 2017, takes place in Trondheim, Norway, at the end of June. Next year's conference will be in Stockholm, Sweden, co-located with IJCAI 2018.
