Six With Ties to MIT Honored as ACM Fellows

Six distinguished scientists with ties to MIT were recognized “for significant contributions in areas including cybersecurity, human-computer interaction, mobile computing, and recommender systems among many other areas.”

Doctoral Thesis: Context and Participation in ML

Harini Suresh Abstract: ML systems are shaped by human choices and norms, from problem conceptualization to deployment.  They are then used in complex socio-technical contexts, where they interact

Christina Delimitrou

Assistant Professor, [CS]

Office: 32-G738

​Doctoral Thesis: Towards Scalable Structured Data from Clinical Text

Monica Agrawal Abstract: The data in electronic health records have immense potential to transform medicine both at the point-of-care and through retrospective research. However, structured data alone can only

Doctoral Thesis: Specification and verification of sequential machines in rule-based hardware languages

Thomas Bourgeat Abstract: The design of correct hardware is an important concern in the age of information, where more and more companies are designing chips tailored to their workloads.

Doctoral Thesis: The Lottery Ticket Hypothesis: On Sparse, Trainable Neural Networks

Jonathan Frankle In this thesis defense, I will present my work on the “Lottery Ticket Hypothesis,” which provides a new perspective on understanding how neural networks learn in

Doctoral Thesis: Volumetric Mapping for Medical Imaging and Geometry Processing

Mazdak Abulnaga Abstract:Mapping is a central problem in medical imaging and computer graphics. Most methods for this task apply only to two-dimensional (2D) surfaces. The neglected task of

Doctoral Thesis: Untangling the complexity of nature: Machine-learning for accelerated life-sciences

Adam U. Yaari Abstract:  Biological mechanisms are convoluted and stochastic systems that remain largely misunderstood despite centuries of rigorous scientific work. Machine-learning (ML) is a powerful framework to

Doctoral Thesis: Risk Aware Planning and Probabilistic Prediction for Autonomous Systems under Uncertain Environments

Weiqiao Han Abstract: This thesis considers risk aware planning and probabilistic prediction for autonomous systems under uncertain environments. Motion planning under uncertainty looks for trajectories with bounded probability
