We are very excited to welcome the following inspiring invited speakers!

Mihaela van der Schaar is the John Humphrey Plummer Professor of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Medicine at the University of Cambridge, a Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute in London, and a Chancellor’s Professor at UCLA. Mihaela was elected IEEE Fellow in 2009. She has received numerous awards, including the Oon Award for Preventative Medicine from the University of Cambridge, an NSF CAREER Award, 3 IBM Faculty Awards, the IBM Exploratory Stream Analytics Innovation Award, the Philips Make a Difference Award, 3 ISO Awards, and several best paper awards, including the IEEE Darlington Award. In 2019, she was identified by the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts as the most-cited female AI researcher in the UK. Her research expertise spans signal and image processing, communication networks, network science, multimedia, game theory, distributed systems, machine learning, and AI. Mihaela’s research focus is on machine learning, AI, and operations research for healthcare and medicine.

Fernanda Viégas is a Principal Scientist at Google, where she co-leads the PAIR  (People+AI Research) initiative, part of Google Brain. She is also an incoming Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science at Harvard SEAS and Radcliffe Alumnae Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, where she will be affiliated with the Harvard Business School and expand her collaborations in applied machine learning and data visualization across disciplines such as healthcare and policy. Her work in machine learning, with long-time colleague Martin Wattenberg, focuses on improving human-AI interaction with a broader agenda of democratizing AI technology. She is well known for her contributions to social and collaborative visualization, and the systems she and her team have created are used daily by millions of people. Her visualization-based artwork with Wattenberg has been exhibited worldwide and is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Fernanda holds a Ph.D. from the MIT Media Lab.

Rediet Abebe is a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows and an incoming Assistant Professor at EECS at UC Berkeley. Abebe holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University, where she was advised by Jon Kleinberg, as well as an M.S. in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University, an M.A. in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge, and a B.A. in Mathematics from Harvard College. Her research is broadly in the fields of artificial intelligence and algorithms, with a focus on equity and justice concerns. As part of this research agenda, she co-founded and co-organizes Mechanism Design for Social Good (MD4SG), a multi-institutional, interdisciplinary research initiative working to improve access to opportunity for historically underserved and disadvantaged communities. This initiative has participants from over 100 institutions in 20 countries and has been supported by organizations including Schmidt Futures, the MacArthur Foundation, and the Institute for New Economic Thinking.

Anca Dragan is an Assistant Professor in EECS at UC Berkeley, where she runs the InterACT Lab. Her goal is to enable robots to work with, around, and in support of people. She works on algorithms that enable robots to a) coordinate with people in shared spaces and b) learn what people want them to do, spanning different applications, from assistive arms to quadrotors, to autonomous cars, and drawing from optimal control, game theory, reinforcement learning, Bayesian inference, and cognitive science. Anca did her Ph.D. in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University on legible motion planning. At Berkeley, she helped found and serves on the steering committee of the Berkeley AI Research Lab, is a co-PI for the Center for Human-Compatible AI, and has been honored by the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the Sloan Fellowship, the NSF CAREER Award, the ONR Young Investigator Award, an Okawa Foundation Research Grant, MIT’s TR35, and an IJCAI Early Career Spotlight.
