CS is Great!!!










Dr. Art Shindhelm


I firmly believe that you should enjoy what you do for a living. Teaching fits that category for me and that is why I am at Western. I truly enjoy seeing students get satisfaction in working hard and mastering a difficult concept.

Currently my research interests are Fuzzy Logic, Robotics, and Automated Reasoning. These are subfields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) which fascinate me. These fields have many different practical applications which involve solving problems from a “common sense” point of view.

Presently I am the director of AI Laboratory.
