Aude Oliva named 2014 Guggenheim Fellow
12 April 2014
CSAIL research scientist Aude Oliva has been named a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow in recognition of her contributions to the field of computer science.
According to its website, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation appoints Fellows "on the basis of impressive achievement in the past and exceptional promise for future accomplishment."
Oliva joined the MIT faculty in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences in 2004 and the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) in 2012. Her research is cross-disciplinary, spanning human perception and cognition, computer vision, and neuroscience, focusing on research questions at the intersection of the three domains. Her work builds on the synergy between human and machine vision, and how it applies to solving artificial intelligence problems like understanding scenes, perceiving space, recognizing objects, modeling attention, eye movements, and memory.
In 2004 the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has awarded 177 Fellowships (including one joint Fellowship) to a diverse group of 178 scholars, artists, and scientists.
