2011 Marine Robotics/AI Planning & Execution, Machine Learning Summer Internship, Monterey Bay California

MBARI’s Autonomous Systems group has an opening for one internship position for the summer of 2011 for a beginning PhD student.


MBARI (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute is a private non-profit oceanographic research institute which has engaged in inter-disciplinary research in the ocean sciences and technology for over 20 years. The institute does advanced work in Robotics, Genetics, Micro-Biology and Ocean Exploration and Observing with 3 ocean going ships, 2 Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV’s) and 3 Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV’s) in addition to state-of-the-art science and technology facilities. 2011 Internship applications are now open with details at:

These internships are competitive, paid and open to all nationalities. They are for a fixed period of 10 weeks starting June 13th 2011.

MBARI’s Autonomous Systems group is engaged in research efforts to use advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to enable Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV to be more adaptive and self aware of their resource and goal commitments. Our onboard deliberative system T-REX ( being used onboard an AUV is based on the sense-deliberate-act paradigm synthesizing new mission plans in response to environmental conditions. T-REX uses a state-of-the-art temporal constraint-based planner originally developed at NASA and flown on a number of space missions including the ongoing Mars Exploration Rovers (MER) mission. All projects are associated with the CANON ( program and are research centric.


Potential internship opportunities for 2011 include working on Constraint-based Planning, Machine Learning and Spatial Statistics. Potential projects are along the lines of:

1. Automated Planning: Dealing with discrete resources for planning within the constraint-based planning framework reflecting the consumables onboard an AUV. Modeling and integrating the use of these resources within the plans synthesized by TREX is an important problem for these resource restricted platforms which work in harsh environments.

2. Automated Planning: Using constraint-based temporal planning techniques using coarse grained plan representation to coordinate multiple assets (robots, ships, aircraft fly-bys) for oceanographic field experiments.

3. Machine Learning: Synthesis of multiple Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) for discovering unstructured and dynamic features in the coastal ocean is critical to make optimal use of the platform at sea. Currently T-REX uses only a single model; interrupting plan execution to chase multiple hypothesis at sea by an AUV is the core of the effort.

4. Machine Learning: Techniques in parameterizing incoming data streams from heterogenous sources for event response. Such data will be used for tagging by mixed human and automated mechanisms for detection triggers of dynamic, episodic and non-deterministic features in the coastal ocean. Techniques popularized by Amazon’s Mechanical Turk in the general area of Folksonomy will be used for identifying such features for eventual investigation by autonomous robots.

5. Spatial Statistics: Model building of dynamic ocean features which incorporate space and time and doing so onboard a resource limited robot with implications for adaptive sampling.


Highly motivated beginning PhD students with substantial

+ Java, C++ and MATLAB programming skills; this is a must have
+ AI Planning and a background in Constraint Satisfaction
+ Statistical Machine Learning backgrounds
+ Self motivated with good communication skills

and desirous of making a research impact in the ocean sciences are encouraged to apply. The interns will be expected to go to sea at least once during the fellowship. Applicants must be registered in a PhD program. 3 letters of support are necessary. Only applicants with a focus on AI and Robotics related projects will be considered.

Previous visiting interns have come from MIT (4), Colorado State, University of Michigan, Strathclyde University (UK), University of Birmingham (UK), LAAS/Toulouse (France), Univ. of California Santa Cruz, Univ. of Southern California (2), Univ. Carlos III de Madrid (Spain) (2), IIT Madras (India) and Heriot-Watt University (UK).
