Dr. Daniel Tauritz is:
Formerly he was an Associate Professor with Tenure and Associate Chair of Undergraduate Studies and Outreach Activities in the Department of Computer Science at Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), formerly University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR). He was the director of S&T's Natural Computation Laboratory (NC-LAB), a Research Investigator in the Intelligent Systems Center, and an Investigator in the Energy Research & Development Center.
His primary research interests are the Automated Design of Algorithms employing Hyper-Heuristics, and Evolutionary Computing, in particular their use as robust solvers for real-world problem solving, with an emphasis on applications in the cyber domain, ranging from adversarial models in cyber (physical) security to evolving graph algorithms to the automated design of SAT solver heuristics.
Recent events he was involved in include:
Dr. T curates the following two news briefs:
He teaches a two-course sequence on Evolutionary Computing. The first course is COMP 5660/6660 - Evolutionary Computing. The second course is COMP 7660 - Research Methods in Evolutionary Computing. The current offering in this course sequence is COMP 5660/6660 in Fall 2023, followed by COMP 7660 in Spring 2024.
He co-teaches with Dr. Drew Springall a two-course sequence on Artificial Intelligence for Security (AI4Sec). The first course is COMP 5970/6970 - AI4Sec-Foundations. The second course is COMP 7800 - AI4Sec-Research & Development. The next offering in this course sequence is COMP 5970/6970 in Spring 2024.
He taught a section of COMP 3240 - Discrete Structures in Spring 2023.
