Johns Hopkins PhD student named Apple Scholar

May 11, 2023

Yutong Bai, a fourth-year computer science PhD student at Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering, has been named a 2023 Apple Scholar in AI/ML—artificial intelligence and machine learning. The goal is to give AI systems a deeper understanding of reality beyond just what is specified in the training data. "By using self-supervised learning, models can acquire a similar foundation of knowledge and avoid making silly mistakes." "We are now surrounded by AI in everyday life, so we need safer AI systems that users can trust in the real world. But there are so many more possibilities out there and that's why I'm interested in this research," Bai says.
