Official Bio

Gregg Rabideau is a researcher and software developer in the Artificial Intelligence Group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. He is working on new planning and scheduling technologies for several space projects sponsored by NASA. His research interests include soft real-time re-planning and plan optimization. He holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Illinois where he graduated with highest honors. Over the years, Gregg has been involved in three projects to receive an award at the NASA Software of the Year Competition: ASE, ASPEN, and the Remote Agent Experiment.
