Joseph Modayil

I am an AI researcher working at Openmind Research Institute and Keen AGI, while living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

My research is on understanding intelligence well enough to build minds that can function in the real world. I rely on both reinforcement learning and robots as research tools.

Previously, I was a staff research scientist at Google DeepMind, working in both Edmonton and London. I received my PhD under Ben Kuipers at the University of Texas at Austin, worked with Henry Kautz at the University of Rochester, and spent many years working with Rich Sutton at the University of Alberta.
