Professor Georg Gottlob elected Fellow of the Royal Society


Georg Gottlob is one of four University of Oxford researchers to have been elected as new Fellows of the Royal Society.  Georg Gottlob has been recognized for his fundamental contributions to both artificial intelligence and to database systems. His research has centred on the algorithmic and logical aspects of knowledge representation, database queries, and recently for web data processing. His work has resulted in the invention of several efficient algorithms for constraint satisfaction, web data extraction and database query processing, some of which are now in widespread use. He has developed a common core to the underlying principles of artificial intelligence and databases. In his work on clarifying the intrinsic complexity of problems in these areas, Georg Gottlob has solved open problems in computational logic, non-monotonic reasoning and database theory.   Professor Georg Gottlob is Professor of Computing Science at the Computing Laboratory, a founding member of the Oxford-Man Institute, and a Fellow of St Anne's College.
