Technion Program for Excellence

Robert Parhan / Computer Science

First and second degrees in Computer Science at the Technion.


Participated in the Technion Excellence Program: October 1996 – February 2000.


During four years of study, Robert attained his first as well as his second degree simultaneously. Under the guidance of Prof. Yoram Baram from the Faculty of Computer Science he undertook research on: “Avoiding robots collisions by neural networks“.
The research examined how one might prevent robots from colliding with each other, while in movement, in a dual or multi-dimensional space, with the aid of artificial intelligence.


After graduating from the Program, Robert studied for another MA degree, this time in Business Management, and worked at Microsoft and then at IBM.


Today (2012): Studying for PhD in Business in the university of Rochester, USA.
