Mason is a second-year computer science Masters student with a focus in artificial intelligence for robots. He is particularly interested in human-robot interaction, deep reinforcement learning, natural language, and embodied cognition. His goal is to make robots more helpful to humans by helping them understand the world in human terms.
He earned his bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Applied Music from Transylvania University in 2016. Since then, he has held three internships as a software engineer, covering robot motion planning, 3D reconstruction (computer vision), and AI-on-the-edge. He is currently involved with the Sandia Shared Mental Models for Flight Planning project.
In his free time, Mason plays clarinet and mandolin, is a fan of strategy games, and occasionally writes stories.
Shared Mental Models play a crucial role in a number of different aspects of teamwork. Shared mental models are more than simply an understanding of the state of the exterior world, they also incorporate information about who within a team has both the ability to perform certain tasks as well as the responsibility to see that they are performed correctly.
