Virtual Event

Join the Director of Strategic Industry Engagement of MIT’s Schwarzman College of Computing, Aude Oliva, and MIT’s Technology Licensing Officer of software and computing, Kevin Hogan for a conversation around the strength and fragility of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Together, they will explore topics including: AI in business, speed of change, data bias, the interpretability of AI’s output, and more.


Aude Oliva, PhD is the Director of Strategic Industry Engagement in the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing, and the MIT director in the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab, leading collaborations with industry to translate natural and artificial intelligence research into tools for the wider world. She is also a senior research scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), where she heads the Computational Perception and Cognition group.

Oliva has received an NSF Career Award in computational neuroscience, a Guggenheim fellowship in computer science and a Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship in cognitive neuroscience. She has served as an expert to the NSF Directorate of Computer and Information Science and Engineering on the topic of human and artificial intelligence. She is currently a member of the scientific advisory board for the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence. Her research is cross-disciplinary, spanning human perception and cognition, computer vision and cognitive neuroscience, and focuses on research questions at the intersection of all three domains. She earned a MS and PhD in cognitive science from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble, France.

Kevin Hogan is the Technology Licensing Officer in Software, Artificial Intelligence, Communications, Algorithms, Cybersecurity, Information and Data Technology at MIT Technology Licensing Office. Kevin worked in various roles in Software and Embedded Systems product development for over 35 years in consumer electronics, medical devices and semiconductor manufacturing systems.
