She is among five Abie Award recipients selected this year by AnitaB.org for roles in supporting women in tech. To that end, her team applies machine learning techniques to large data sets to allow systems to understand the context of a scene as well as identify the objects in the scene. With the ultimate goal of making AI technology more inclusive and beneficial to society, AI4ALL gives young women and others from underrepresented groups a chance to learn the basics of the field from an early age. Princeton hosted its second annual AI4ALL camp from July 21 to Aug. 10, bringing 32 high school students from around the country to campus for intensive training, group projects and guest lectures by leading researchers in AI — broadly defined as a branch of computer science that uses computers to make predictions and guide decisions. My favorite part of the camp was working on the group projects during the evening. The Princeton program, a collaboration between the computer science department and the Center for Information Technology Policy, featured discussions on the ethics and policy implications of AI technology. © 2020 The Trustees of Princeton University, Russakovsky recognized for fighting bias and advancing diversity in AI research, was selected by the nonprofit organization AnitaB.org for its 2020, Emerging Leader Abie Award in Honor of Denice Denton, , recognizing her work to fight bias in artificial intelligence through research and mentorship.
The lessons introduced basic computer science and programming skills, as well as key concepts in machine learning, a set of AI techniques in which datasets are used to train computer algorithms to recognize specific patterns. Afternoon guest lectures by Princeton faculty members offered in-depth discussions of AI research and policy topics.
to learn about Artificial Intelligence governance and policy was one of the highlights of Princeton AI4ALL 2018. Russakovsky co-directs Princeton’s AI4All summer program, which brings together high school students from underrepresented groups to learn the basics of the field through intensive training, group projects and guest lectures. Co-founder Olga Russakovsky and high school students talk about this summer’s AI4All camp. With the goal of making AI technology more inclusive and beneficial to society, Russakovsky helped establish the national AI4ALL nonprofit in 2017. The Princeton Computer Science Department, the Princeton Center for Information Technology Policy, and the AI4ALL foundation run an annual summer camp to teach AI to high school students from underrepresented groups. Olga Russakovsky, an assistant professor of computer science, has been recognized with two early-career awards from organizations that promote diversity in technical fields. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the world. The last day of the program included a visit from Raza Abbas, a 2018 Princeton AI4ALL alumnus and a rising senior at Egg Harbor Township High School in southern New Jersey.

Having AI be demystified was amazing and it felt like I was understanding magic. Teenagers enjoy the products of artificial intelligence (AI) every day, whether taking a twisted selfie with a photo filter or listening to music with an automated streaming service.
