Amin Karbasi receives DARPA Young Faculty Award for Efficient Learning of Human Intent from Observations

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected Yale Institute for Network Science (YINS) Assistant Professor Amin Karbasi as a recipient of the DARPA Young Faculty Award.

The objective of the DARPA Young Faculty Award (YFA) program is to identify and engage rising research stars in junior faculty positions at U.S. academic institutions and introduce them to Department of Defense needs as well as DARPA’s program development process.

Professor Karbasi’s topic, “System and Method to Decode Human Intent” is titled, “Efficient Learning of Human Intent from Observations”.

The YFA program provides funding, mentoring and industry and DoD contacts to awardees early in their careers so they may develop their research ideas in the context of DoD needs. The program focuses on untenured faculty, emphasizing those without prior DARPA funding. The long-term goal of the YFA program is to develop the next generation of academic scientists, engineers and mathematicians in key disciplines who will focus a significant portion of their careers on DoD and national security issues.
