A bitter-sweet announcement from us at the Trustworthy AI Lab, we bid farewell to a cherished member of our team, Aishwaryaprajna. As Aish’s time with us comes to an end, we wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude and wish her all the best in her exciting new role as a faculty member at the University of Exeter.
Aish has been an invaluable part of our team, being instrumental in forming the lab’s identity, building the lab’s research portfolio, and as a role model through her excellent mentorship of graduate researchers; she has not only been a dedicated and hardworking colleague but also a friend who will be dearly missed.
While at Ontario Tech, Aishwaryaprajna published several journal articles on modelling algorithmic aspects of AI systems, that deepened our understanding of how they behave in noisy situations. She also developed and analyzed a novel problem definition that captures important dynamics between learning, reflection, and sustainability of resource use. This “Sustainable Foraging Problem”, published at ALife and IEEE ACSOS, established a platform for exploring questions around reflective AI systems and sustainability, into the future.
As Aish embarks on this new chapter in her career, we do not doubt that she will continue to excel and make significant contributions wherever her path leads her. From all of us at the Trustworthy AI Lab, we wish you all the best, good luck and farewell!
