Congratulations to Professor Maria Gini on winning the ACM/SIGAI Autonomous Agents Research Award for 2022! This prestigious prize recognises years of research and leadership in the field of robotics and multi-agent systems.

Maria Gini is Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota, and has been at the forefront of the field of robotics and multi-agent systems for many years, consistently bringing AI into robotics.

Her work includes the development of:

  • novel algorithms to connect the logical and geometric aspects of robot motion and learning,
  • novel robot programming languages to bridge the gap between high-level programming languages and programming by guidance,
  • pioneering novel economic-based multi-agent task planning and execution algorithms.

Her work has spanned both the design of novel algorithms and practical applications. These applications have been utilized in settings as varied as warehouses and hospitals, with uses such as surveillance, exploration, and search and rescue.

Maria has been an active member and leader of the agents community since its inception. She has been a consistent mentor and role model, deeply committed to bringing diversity to the fields of AI, robotics, and computing. She is also the former President of International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (IFAAMAS).

Maria will be giving an invited talk at AAMAS 2022. More details on this will be available soon on the conference website.
