Four current MIT faculty members have been elected as fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), according to a news release published today by the journal Science.

The new fellows are among a group of 391 AAAS members elected by their peers in recognition of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science. This year’s fellows will be honored at a ceremony on Feb. 18, 2017, at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston.

Howard E. Shrobe, a principal research scientist at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, was recognized for “distinguished research in knowledge representation and its applicability to human-serving artificial intelligence systems, and both research and service to the federal government in comprehensive approaches to addressing cybersecurity problems.”

This year’s fellows will be formally announced in the AAAS News and Notes section of Science on Nov. 25.
