[Roger Browse]
Roger Browse

Flags on campus currently lowered in memory of Flora MacDonald will remain lowered for Roger Browse, a faculty member in the Queen’s School of Computing. Dr. Browse died on July 18 after a long illness.

Dr. Browse joined the Queen’s School of Computing (then the Department of Computing and Information Science) shortly after receiving his PhD from the University of British Columbia in 1982. He quickly established himself as a recognized expert in artificial intelligence, computer vision, and robotics.

In 1984, he founded the school’s cognitive science undergraduate program, believed to be the first such program in the world, combining computer science, psychology, philosophy, linguistics and neuroscience. Over the years, Dr. Browse remained the program’s main architect, passionate advocate and indefatigable promoter. He served as its co-ordinator, principal instructor and dedicated student advisor.
