Invasion of the Bias Snatchers

ECE Assistant Professor Sarah Ostadabbas was featured in the latest issue of Northeastern’s Litmus podcast “Invasion of the Bias Snatchers,” about how her research is using computers to simulate how people sleep.

Computers might be perfect students, but when they have biased teachers, their purpose becomes their pitfall. If you’re worried about artificial intelligence taking over the world, remember: Computers are only as good as their makers—and they’re more human than you think.

In this episode, we talk to Sarah Ostadabbas (assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering), Byron Wallace (assistant professor of computer science and director of Bachelor of Science in Data Science), and Tina Eliassi-Rad (associate professor of computer science).
