Pedro Torres is a PhD student in the group, and also a Research Associate on the Objet Trouve project. He has interests in Automated Theory Formation and in the Objet Trouve approach to computing.
Pedro works at the intersection of Logic and Machine Learning and is interested in designing a system which can form mathematical theories automatically from basic definitions and axioms. As part of that goal, he is devising an algorithm which takes examples of interesting human-created theories and induces a theory formation system which can form theories using the constructions learned from the example theories. In other words, he is interested in automating the process of generating automated theory formation systems (Meta-level Theory Formation).
