Simon Ellis is working with the Tetherless World Constellation on the Watson project with Professor Jim Hendler. A PhD student in the Computer Science Department at RPI, he did his undergraduate work at the University of Bolton, UK, where he focused on game AI, before working in the games industry as an AI specialist and game designer. His interests are in AI and high-end computing, such as the IBM Watson system, and in particular what possibilities such a knowledge-based, semantically-aware 'cognitive' system can offer an AI developer.
