As a key contributor, project leader, and manager, Dr. Frawley has conducted and directed leading-edge applied research and development in knowledge-based systems; distributed, adaptive systems; knowledge discovery in databases; and network information agents. Among his achievements are the following:
Project Leader, Network Information Agents 1994 to present
Established and directed a project targeting services delivered over the Internet. Provided the personalization and customization module of a soon-to-be-released news reader and filter, clustering customers based on their usage histories and presenting to them choices common to their behavioral counterparts.
Project Leader, Learning In Expert Domains 1987 to 1994
Responsible for the Integrated Learning System, a multi-agent, platform-independent adaptive telephone network controller, and for ARMS, an inductively-defined automated maintenance scheduler for airborne radios
Manager, Information Sciences Department 1983 to 1987
Established and directed a department focused on adaptive systems and
distributed intelligence. Installed and maintained an adaptive
system for quality control in
The MITRE Corporation,
Staff Scientist and Group Leader, Knowledge Based Systems
Directed work on Knobs, a resource allocation and natural language system for tactical air mission planning, which was the research prototype for the system used in the Gulf War.
Group Leader, Computational Intelligence 1977 to 1981
Established the first industrial artificial intelligence research team and was responsible for Gamma, a knowledge based system for the interpretation of gamma ray spectra, and the Dipmeter Advisor, an expert system for subsurface geological interpretation.
Manager, Informatics Department and Mathematics Department, and MTS
He is a member of the American Mathematical Society, IEEE, Sigma Xi, and
AAAI, has been an NSF Research Fellow and a NASA Fellow, and holds two patents.
He served as co-chair of the first international workshop on knowledge
discovery in databases (IJCAI, 1989), was an organizer of subsequent knowledge
discovery workshops at national conferences, and was a co-author of the paper
selected as Best Paper at the 1990 European AI conference. In 1992 he lectured
at four universities in
B.S, M.S. - Physics,
Ph. D. - Mathematics,
Expert in Lisp/CLOS, proficient in Java.
