The AAAI-22 awards were announced during the opening ceremony of the 36th AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI2022). The list of AAAI award-winning papers includes two papers with Oxford University Department of Computer Science authors, Jiarui Gan and Alessandro Abate. 

Jiarui was co-author of Bayesian persuasion in sequential decision-making (recognised as a AAAI-22 outstanding paper runner-up) and Alessandro was co-author of AAAI-22 distinguished paper Sampling-based robust control of autonomous systems with non-Gaussian noise.

Alessandro is Professor of Verification & Control at the Department of Computer Science, where he also leads the Oxford Control & Verification group (OXCAV) - please visit his group’s webpage at:   

Jiarui is a departmental lecturer at the Department of Computer Science. He was previously a DPhil student in the department and returned in early 2022 after doing a postdoc at Max Planck Institute for Software Systems. He is broadly interested in topics in game theory, multi-agent systems, and AI. 

This year the AAAI conference received a record 9,251 submissions, of which 9,020 were reviewed. Based on a thorough and rigorous review process 1,349 papers were accepted.
