In Hindu religion of India, "Shakti" goddess is worshipped during nine days of Navaratra. And today is the fifth day of Navaratra of 2017. So, I would love to celebrate five more women in AI on the auspicious fifth day of Navaratra.

1. Dr. Corinna Cortes

Dr. Corinna Cortes is the Head of Google Research, NY, where she is dealing with a broad range of theoretical and applied vast scale machine learning issues. Preceding Google, Corinna spent over 10 years at AT&T Labs - Research, formerly AT&T Bell Labs, where she held a recognized research position.

Corinna's examination work is notable specifically for her commitments to the theoretical foundations of support vector machines (SVMs), for which she mutually with Vladimir Vapnik got the 2008 Paris Kanellakis Theory and Practice Award, and her work on data mining in extensive datasets for which she was granted the AT&T Science and Technology Medal in the year 2000. Corinna got her MS degree in Physics from University of Copenhagen and joined AT&T Bell Labs as a scientist in 1989. She got her Ph.D. in software engineering from the University of Rochester in 1993.

2. Dr. Raia Hadsell

Dr. Raia Hadsell is a research scientist on the Deep Learning at Deepmind. Her research interest lies in Robotics, Neural networks and real world learning systems. After an Undergraduate degree in religion and philosophy, Hadsell became a computer scientist. Her PhD with YannLeCun, at NYU, focussed on Machine Learning using Siamese Neural Nets, and on Deep Learning for mobile robots in the wild. Her thesis “Learning Long range Vision for Offroad Robots was awarded the Outstanding Dissertation Award in 2009. She worked at CMU Robotics Institute and then became a Research Scientist at SRI International, at the Vision and Robotics Group in Princeton, NJ.

3. Dr. Cordelia Schmidt

Dr. Cordelia Schmidt holds a M.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Karlsruhe and a Doctorate, likewise in Computer Science, from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (INPG). Her doctoral proposal on " Local Greyvalue Invariants for Image Matching and Retrieval " got the best proposition grant from INPG in 1996. She got the Habilitation degree in 2001 for her postulation entitled "From Image Matching to Learning Visual Models".

Dr. Schmidt was a post-doctoral research associate in the Robotics Research Group of Oxford University in 1996- - 1997. Since 1997 she has held a perpetual research position at INRIA Rhone-Alpes, where she is an exploration executive and coordinates an INRIA group. Dr. Schmidt is the creator of over a hundred specialized productions. She has been an Associate Editor for IEEE PAMI (2001- - 2005) and for IJCV (2004- - 2012), supervisor in-boss for IJCV (2013 - present), a program seat of IEEE CVPR 2005 and ECCV 2012 and a general seat of IEEE CVPR 2015.

In 2006, 2014 and 2016, she was granted the Longuet-Higgins prize for major commitments in computer vision that have withstood the trial of time. She is a kindred of IEEE. She was granted an ERC propelled allow in 2013, the Humbolt look into grant in 2015 and the Inria and French Academy of Science Grand Prix in 2016. She was chosen for the German National Academy of Sciences, Leopoldina, in 2017.

4. Dr. Suchi Saria

Dr. Suchi Saria is an assistant professor of computer science, health policy, and statistics at Johns Hopkins University. Preceding joining Johns Hopkins, she earned her PhD and Masters at Stanford in Computer Science working with Dr. Daphne Koller. She additionally put in a year at Harvard University working together with Dr. Ken Mandl and Dr. Zak Kohane as a NSF Computing Innovation Fellow. While in the valley, she additionally invested energy as an early worker at Aster Data Systems, a major information startup gained by Teradata. She appreciates counseling and prompting information related new companies.

She is a financial specialist and a casual guide to PatientPing. Dr. Saria's interests traverse machine learning, computational measurements, and its applications to spaces where one needs to draw deductions from watching a mind boggling, true framework develop after some time. The accentuation of her exploration is on Bayesian and probabilistic graphical displaying approaches for tending to challenges related with demonstrating and forecast in genuine fleeting frameworks. Over the most recent seven years, she has been especially attracted to computational answers for issues in wellbeing informatics (see her current article on this point) as she sees a gigantic open door there for high effect work.

5. Dr. Anima Anandkumar

Dr. Anima Anandkumar is an important researcher at Amazon Web Services, and is right now on leave from U.C.Irvine, where she is a partner educator. Her research interests are in the ranges of large scale machine learning, non-conexed optimisation and high-dimensional statistics. Specifically, she has been leading the advancement and examination of tensor calculations. She is the beneficiary of a few honors, for example, the Alfred. P. Sloan Fellowship, Microsoft Faculty Fellowship, Google explore honor, ARO and AFOSR Young Investigator Awards, NSF CAREER Award, Early Career Excellence in Research Award at UCI, Best Thesis Award from the ACM SIGMETRICS society, IBM Fran Allen PhD partnership, and a few best paper grants.

She has been included in various discussions, for example, the Quora ML session, Huffington post, Forbes, O'Reilly media, et cetera. She got her B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from IIT Madras in 2004 and her PhD from Cornell University in 2009. She was a postdoctoral scientist at MIT from 2009 to 2010, a colleague educator at U.C. Irvine in the vicinity of 2010 and 2016, and a meeting analyst at Microsoft Research New England in 2012 and 2014.


If you are a woman who wishes to advance in the automation business and who aspires to hold a leadership position, there has never been a better time than right now.
