I am a Ph.D. student at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. Over the last three years, I have been serving as a teaching assistant (TA) and a supervisor in the graduate level course of Entrepreneurship and Intellectual Property at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management. In the current semester, I serve as a principal teaching assistant in the undergraduate course of Marketing Principles.
My primary research interests are in the areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and economics. My current research is focused on Planning and Decision Making In Artificial Intelligence Oversubscription Systems with general utility functions.
I received my B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering and Management (cum laude) and B.A. in Economics and Management from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. Before my Ph.D. studies, I was an information systems engineer at Elbit Systems for five years.
Actually, I didn’t find a reason yet why shouldn’t we use them. Computationally cheap, can improve but do not do damage; In the worst case scenario using them will achieve the same results as not using. It just an extra, very relevant information that you can use or not. Make your choice… 🙂 But if… Continue Reading What is it Value Landmarks? Why shall we use them?
A detailed technical report of out ICAPS 2018 paper Value Driven Landmark for Oversubscription Planning is available. In the technical report, we provide detail examples of the theory in the paper. We look closely at the terms of optimality and achievements concerning the complexity of the real-world scenarios. ICAPS 2018 Slides of our presentation along… Continue Reading Technical Report for the Paper on Value Driven Landmarks for Oversubscription Planning
Hi, Here is a new animation explainer I am working on. It comes to clear another point from our research on Oversubscription planning and the merits of value landmarks in a complex (day life) problems with sequential actions. There are some tuning left; I would love to have your comments. Thanks!
Oversubscription planning termed by D. Smith (2004), also referred to as OSP, deals with achieving a state with a high utility value, given a budget on total action cost. This formulation allows us to handle situations with under-constrained resources, which do not allow us to achieve all possible goal facts. OSP objective differs from classical planning… Continue Reading Introduction to our research on oversubscription planning – OSP
Our paper on Value Driven Landmarks for Oversubscription Planning  is presented in the International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling – ICAPS 2018 Oversubscription planning is the problem of choosing an action sequence which reaches a state with a high utility, given a budget for total action cost. Most previous work on oversubscription planning was restricted… Continue Reading Check out our paper in ICAPS 2018
A Good Advice From the Past on Trust by Vladimir Vysotsky – Prove Yourself Being Wrong Before Being Right
In my previous blog post, I was writing about the illusion of being right. Here I want to share a piece of advice from my past on how to prove yourself wrong. This advice is suggested by my parents, Lev and Svetlana, which exposed my brother Alex and me in our childhood to the songs… Continue Reading A Good Advice From the Past on Trust by Vladimir Vysotsky – Prove Yourself Being Wrong Before Being Right
Sometimes there is no credit for being right. In many cases, there is a big difference between being right and making the right things happen. If you see a disaster and you are right about this disaster going to happen, there are few decisions you can take: 1. If you want to be right, if… Continue Reading The Illusion of Being Right and The Paradox of Being Right and Making The Right Things Happen
How Can We Know if Our Coin is a Currency? Well, we can bite the coin and try to taste currency. But what is the taste of currency? For me, it tastes like bread and a far flavor of a loan. It is here and now, but also there, in the future… weird? Here is… Continue Reading How Can We Know if Our Coin is a Currency?
