Dr Tony Smith
Senior Lecturer (Computer Science)
Qualifications: MSc Calg PhD Waikato
I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Computer Science from the University of Calgary, and earned my PhD at the University of Waikato.
A general theme of my research is adaptive systems. My background is in artificial intelligence and machine learning, with particular focus on language processing problems. More recently I have been spending quite a bit of time working on bioinformatics projects, and on applications of reinforcement learning within autonomous agents.
I am a member of the editorial board for the International Journal on Intelligent Data Analysis, and a charter member of (among other things) the Australasian Language Technology Association.
