About Susan E. Fox

Fox specializes in artificial intelligence, particularly the use of “introspective reasoning” for self-improving systems. She is creating a system which can reason about its own reasoning processes and alter them when it detects a flaw or failure in its reasoning.
She received a grant from the National Science Foundation to help her develop a robotics lab to support teaching and learning about artificial intelligence in a real-world environment.
