Removing Bias in Artificial Intelligence

December 13, 2018

Last spring, doctoral candidate Ryan Cotterell was named Johns Hopkins’ first Facebook Fellow —one of just 13 chosen from more than 800 international applicants.

The prestigious award supports promising PhD students who are engaged “in innovative and relevant research” in computer science and  engineering by providing significant funding for tuition, $5,000 for travel, and a $37,000 annual research stipend.

And last summer, Cotterell ’13 (A&S), who holds two master’s degree from Johns Hopkins and specializes in natural language processing, computational linguistics, and machine learning, interned at the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research lab in New York City, a “blue sky” lab focused on machine learning or AI.
