Dr. Igor Rochlin received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Bar-Ilan University in the field of Search Theory and Game Theory. Prior to his doctoral studies, he served in leading positions in the Israeli high-tech industry and has a strong R&D background. Through his experience in both research and industry, Dr. Rochlin emphasizes theoretical contributions with real-world applications.
At present, Dr. Rochlin’s research focuses primarily on artificial intelligence and multi-agent systems, dealing with cooperation, influence of fairness on efficiency and economic search. Within this realm, particular attention is given to the role that information plays in multi-agent settings, typically incorporating considerations of various types of environments, distinguished by the agent’s goals (fully-cooperative or self-interested). In addition, Dr. Rochlin works to develop innovative energy efficient strategies for a number of important open problems in the field of cognitive radio networks.
Dr. Rochlin’s research has been published in the proceedings of leading competitive conferences and journals in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Furthermore, his research has won several awards and invitations for special fast tracked papers in prestigious artificial intelligence journals (e.g. Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR), Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (JAAMAS)).
