Bart Peintner, PhD
Bart Peintner is the Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of Loop AI Group. His extensive background in Artificial Intelligence and automated personalization was gained through his Ph.D work at the University of Michigan and his 7 years as a Senior Computer Scientist in the Artificial Intelligence Center at SRI International.
In Michigan, he was the principal developer of the Autominder system, a robot-based cognitive aid that analyzed the actions of older adults and adapted to their changing behaviors. At SRI, Bart was a key scientist in the DARPA CALO project, which was the largest government-funded AI project to date, notable for being the first AI project worldwide that integrated numerous AI technologies into one cohesive cognitive assistant.
In this role, Bart worked at the intersection of machine learning, natural language processing,
and preference reasoning to automatically identify models of user behavior and decision-making. He deployed the research concepts for a production-level collaborative task management tool that was used by the US Navy. At SRI, he also co-led a project that analyzed the speech of older adults to find markers of cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
Bart has produced around 40 research publications and six patents in the areas of virtual personal assistants, semantic inference, machine learning, preference reasoning, automated scheduling and planning, constraint optimization, and probabilistic reasoning. His work is cited in over 1300 papers.
