About

Timnit is a PhD candidate in electrical engineering at Stanford University and is a member of the computer vision lab led by Fei-Fei Li. Her research interests lie in the intersection of computer vision and computational sociology: making use of millions of publicly available images to draw sociological insights. Using cars detected from 50 million Google Street View images, her team was able to study and quantify demographic variables such as segregation rates, political affiliations, race, income, and crime rates. Timnit intends to continue her efforts to use artificial intelligence to study society.
