Congratulations to Marynel Vázquez (Evaluating social robot navigation via online human-driven simulations) and Nisheeth Vishnoi (Fair and error-resilient algorithms for AI and ML), who are among the 101 recipients of the 2020 #AmazonResearchAwards, who represent 59 universities in 13 countries. Each award supports the work of one to two graduate or postdoctoral students for one year, under the supervision of a faculty member.
Amazon Research Awards (ARA) was founded in 2015 and merged with AWS Machine Learning Research Awards (MLRA) in 2020. The program oﬀers unrestricted funds and AWS Promotional Credits to support research at academic institutions and non-profit organizations in areas that align with Amazon’s mission to advance customer-obsessed science.
