Background and activities
Pinar’s main research area is artificial intelligence but she does multidisciplinary research linking AI with other parts of cognitive science. Her research activities lie in knowledge representation and modellling, case-based reasoning, multiagent systems, and recently text mining/information extraction areas. The last one is particularly in the context of literature-based scientific discovery within climate science.
Pinar currently teaches these courses: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence , Distributed Artificial intelligence and Multiagent Systems, and Context Sensitive Systems.
