The Winner of SAIS best AI Master's Thesis award 2002

We are happy to announce that the winner of the Swedish AI Society's prize for best Master's Thesis 2002 is Dan-Anders Jirenhed, Linköping University. The title of the Thesis is "Exploring Internal Simulation of Perception in a Mobile Robot" and the supervisor is Tom Ziemke from Skövde University.

The submitted theses were read and evaluated by the SAIS board collectively. A combination of four criteria based on maturity of content, scientific value, writing style, and relevance of the content to the AI topic area, were used to determine the winner. All submitted theses this year were of very high quality although some fell short on one or more of the criteria.

Besides the criteria listed above, the winning thesis is a good example of successful collaboration and mobility between different Swedish universities: Dan-Anders was registered in Linköping, carried out his work in Skövde, and cooperated with researchers from both Lund (neurophysiology) and Skövde (computer science). The thesis also resulted in the following scientific publication:

Jirenhed, Hesslow & Ziemke (2001). Exploring Internal Simulation of Perception in Mobile Robots. In: Arras, Baerveldt, Balkenius, Burgard, Siegwart (eds.) 2001 Fourth European Workshop on Advanced Mobile Robotics - Proceedings (pp. 107-113). Lund University Cognitive Studies, vol. 86. Lund, Sweden.
