The Machine Learning Center Awards Inaugural ML@GT Fellows
The Machine Learning Center at Georgia Tech (ML@GT) has recognized six Ph.D. students as its first ML@GT Fellows. The students – Mehrdad Ghadiri, Maksim Sorokin, Shixiang (Woody) Zhu, Sejoon Oh, Austin Xu, and Sajad Khodadadian – were selected based on their research projects that are focused on the advancement of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).
“ML and AI is an increasingly important field in all aspects of life. As a center that works to train the next generation of leaders in socially and ethically responsible ways, we hope that this program will allow more students who are interested in the field to pursue their education,” said ML@GT Director Irfan Essa.
Each of the recipients will receive funding equal to half of a graduate research assistant appointment for Spring and Summer 2021.
