Robert Moss is a computer science Ph.D. student at Stanford University studying algorithms to validate safety-critical autonomous systems. He holds an M.S. in computer science from Stanford where his research received the best computer science master’s thesis award and he also received the Centennial TA award for his teaching efforts. He earned his B.S. in computer science with a minor in physics from the Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA. Robert was an associate research staff member at MIT Lincoln Laboratory where he was on the team that designed, developed, and validated the next-generation aircraft collision avoidance system for commercial aircraft, unmanned vehicles, and rotorcraft. Robert was also a research engineer at the NASA Ames Research Center, developing decision support tools for the VIPER autonomous Lunar rover mission searching for water deposits on the Moon. Robert is a member of the Stanford Intelligent Systems Laboratory, the Stanford Center for Earth Resources Forecasting, and part of the Stanford Center for AI Safety conducting research on methods for high-dimensional planning under uncertainty using low-dimensional surrogate models, autonomous vehicle risk assessment, and efficient algorithms for safety validation.
