Humans of AI: Stories, Not Stats

By Devi Parikh

This is an interview series with AI researchers to get to know them better as people. We don't talk about AI or their work or the stats of their life like what college they went to. They share what they think about, what they are insecure about, what they get excited about. They share the stories of their day-to-day life. Videos of these interviews are at humanstories.ai. The host is Devi Parikh. Find out more about her at www.cc.gatech.edu/~parikh/ or follow her on Twitter https://twitter.com/deviparikh
