Joelle Pineau named CIFAR Fellow
School of Computer Science Professor Joelle Pineau was named a CIFAR Fellow in April 2016. The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research currently has 14 major research programs, one of which is called Learning in Machines and Brains, which has focused on artificial intelligence and machine research since 2004. CIFAR's mission is to bring together interdisciplinary researchers to engage with questions that have potential impacts on society, government and business. Professor Pineau's research focuses on developing algorithms to allow computers to make good decisions in the real world even with incomplete information, as well as applying these algorithms to solve complex problems in robotics and health care. This fellowship will allow her to pursue new projects such as how to apply some of the latest methods in artificial intelligence to develop new protocols for personalized medicine. This represents an opportunity to collaborate with other researchers at the cutting edge of artificial intelligence research, as she joins a distinguished list of over 350 fellows from 115 institutions spanning 17 countries. Congratulations on this achievement Joelle!
