Artificial Intelligence Resident at Microsoft Research, Cambridge
Isabela Constantin is currently an Artificial Intelligence Resident at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, after just having finished her Master Degree in Computer Science at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. The focus of her research projects is on developing fair and robust machine learning algorithms with socially desirable properties. During her Master Thesis, she studied the vulnerabilities of the recommendation systems algorithms, that drive platforms such as YouTube and Facebook, and how these vulnerabilities can be exploited by malicious actors.
Previously, Isabela obtained her Bachelor degree in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Groningen and she had internships both in industry and academia. In 2018, she worked as a Software Engineer Intern at Microsoft, in Oslo, Norway, and in 2015 she was a research student at Osaka University, in Osaka, Japan, where she worked in the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory under the supervision of Prof. Hiroshi Ishiguro.
She is motivated by looking at social phenomena such as polarisation and filter bubbles through computational lenses and deriving insights which could help alleviate these issues.
