Martha White, Computing Science, University of Alberta
Dr. White is internationally recognized as a leader in this area and has published 50+ papers in top venues in machine learning. She was recognized for her work by the IEEE in 2020 with the “AIs 10 to Watch: The Future of AI” award.

Our systems are getting smarter. For many important systems in our lives, however, like our drinking water treatment facilities, traditional (non-learning and non-automated) approaches are still the norm. Dr. Martha White is developing machine learning systems to allow the systems we interact with on a daily basis to be constantly adapting and improving.
