Mohd Nor Akmal Khalid (Ts. Dr.)

Greeting! I am a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Information Science and Technology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and also a member of the Center for Artificial Intelligence Technology (CAIT). I had previously served as an assistant professor in the School of Information Science, Japan Advance Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) and a part-time Research Fellow in the School of Computer Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). I have obtained my graduate degrees from the University of Science Malaysia since 2018. My work focuses specifically in the techniques used for optimization and artificial intelligence technology in the fields of operational research and game informatics. My topics of interest, include but are not limited to, intelligent and evolutionary search, AI in games, simulation and modeling, and decision support system. I'm looking into harmonizing games and AI in diverse settings. More on that later!
