Marzyeh Ghassemi finds the right guiding star
Marzyeh Ghassemi, 2022 principal investigator for AI and health at the MIT Jameel Clinic, credits her mentor, MIT professor of computer science and engineering Peter Szolovits, as a deciding factor in her path to obtaining a PhD from MIT. Marzyeh says: "It's not the project that makes you successful. Having the right mentor, and the right people around you, should always be your guiding star."
Peter sees the mutually beneficial nature of their collaborative work, noting that she sparked his interest in the issue of AI bias and its implications on healthcare.
