The journal Nature Aging recently published Prof. Allen Tannenbaum’s research with a Yale University-led team which highlights new discoveries related to Alzheimer’s Disease.

Tannenbaum, a professor in the Departments of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics & Statistics at Stony Brook University, is working with Dr. Helene Beveniste’s team at Yale along with Dr. William Van Nostrand from the University of Rhode Island’s George & Ann Ryan Institute for Neuroscience.

 

Data science and artificial intelligence (AI) have shown the capability to generate new knowledge, fuel innovation, and deal with some of society's most pressing problems. However, biases inherent in humans and institutions can be perpetuated and magnified by "big data" and machine learning tools.  Now, a new National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) award of nearly $3 million will enable Stony Brook University to provide interdisciplinary cross-training to PhD students in the computational and data sciences alongside PhD students in the human-centered sciences to detect and address biases in data, models, people, and institutions.
