A small drone takes a test flight through a space filled with randomly placed cardboard cylinders acting as stand-ins for trees, people or structures. The algorithm controlling the drone has been trained on a thousand simulated obstacle-laden courses, but it’s never seen one like this. Still, nine times out of 10, the pint-sized plane dodges...

It is common for researchers to conduct field studies to study mass social behavior in online networks, such as Facebook or Reddit. These studies lead to qualitative-based conclusions. However, until recently, replicating these interactions in the lab and at scale has been hard to do.

Jean-Jacques’s independent project for her CSML certificate focused on developing a machine learning model to predict life outcomes of people. This model was based on data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing study, which is a joint effort between Princeton and Columbia universities. The study follows a cohort of nearly 5,000 children...

Researchers at Princeton University have developed a tool that flags potential biases in sets of images used to train artificial intelligence (AI) systems. The work is part of a larger effort to remedy and prevent the biases that have crept into AI systems that influence everything from credit services to courtroom sentencing programs.
