He is presently developing a MOOC for the KBAI course.
Ashok is a member of the Organizing Committee of the conference series on Advances on Cognitive Systems, and the Steering Committee of the conference series on Theory and Application of Diagrams.
In 2013, we was a member of program committees of several conferences, workshops and symposia, including the Sixteenth International Conference on AI in Education (AIED 2013) in Memphis, Tennessee, the Thirty Fifth Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society (CogSci 2013) in Berlin, Germany, and the Nineteenth International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED 2013) in Seoul, Korea. In 2013, he gave a keynote address to the Twenty First International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning in Saratoga Springs, New York, was a panelist at the Biomimicry 3.8 Seventh Education Summit and Global Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, and the
San Diego Zoo's Conference on Bioinspiration, and gave invited talks at the Dept. of Cognitive Science at University of California at San Diego and the College of Life Sciences at Arizona State University.
Ashok is an Associate Editor of
IEEE Intelligent Systems,
Artificial Intelligence for Engineering Design, Analysis and Manufacturing (AIEDAM), Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures, and Advances in Cognitive Systems. He also serves on the editorial boards of
AAAI's AI Magazine,
Advanced Engineering Informatics (AEI), and Design Creativity and Innovation. He is presently co-editing a special issue of ASME Journal of Mechanical Design on Biologically Inspired Design, and a special issue of AIEDAM on Analogical Thinking.
Ashok serves on the Board of Directors of the Biomimicry 3.8 Institute,
and is a member of BID Community Think Tank that publishes the Bioinspired! digital magazine. He is a life member of the Association for Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, and a member of ACM, IEEE, ASME, the Cognitive Science Society and the Design Society SIG on Design Creativity.
Ashok recently co-edited a volume on computational methods and tools for biologically inspired design. In 2011, his Design & Intelligence research laboratory developed an interactive tool on the web for supporting biologically inspired design; Here is a short video describing the DANE interactive tool. Ashok’s TEDx talk in 2012 summarizes some of his research on AI for biologically inspired design and computational sustainability.
