Christian Lebiere
Dr. Christian Lebiere is a Research Faculty directing the FMS Cognitive Modeling Group in the Psychology Department at Carnegie Mellon University. He received his B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Liege (Belgium) and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. During his graduate career, he studied connectionist models and algorithms and was the co-developer of the Cascade-Correlation neural network learning algorithm that has been used in hundred of practical applications and scientific papers. Since 1991, he has worked on the development of the ACT-R hybrid cognitive architecture and was co-author with John R. Anderson of the 1998 book The Atomic Components of Thought. The ACT-R cognitive architecture is used by a large international community of researchers and has been featured in hundreds of publications in the fields of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence. Dr. Lebiere is a founding member of the Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures Society, of the International Conference on Cognitive Modeling, and of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Artificial General Intelligence and the Journal of Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures. His work has won the Technion Prediction Tournament and best paper awards at a number of conferences. His research has been supported by ONR, AFOSR, ARL, NASA, DARPA, IARPA, DMSO, and DTRA and by a gift from the Nissan Corporation. His main research interests are cognitive architectures and their applications to psychology, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, decision-making, intelligent agents, network science, cognitive robotics and neuromorphic engineering.
