For students who are interested in AI for Social Good: I am teaching 08-537 / 08-737: Artificial Intelligence Methods for Social Good in Spring 2018 (Tuesday/Thursday 10:30-11:50).
For prospective students who are planning to apply for Ph.D. programs: If you are interested in working with me, please apply for the Ph.D. programs in CMU/SCS. I am a core faculty in Societal Computing Ph.D. Program, and an affiliated faculty in Machine Learning Department. Students Note: You may apply to several Ph.D. programs at CMU/SCS at once. Mention and explain your interest in my work to ensure that I see your application.
