Professor Kate Larson
IAS Annual Theme: AI:Facts, Fictions, Futures
University of Waterloo, Canada
Kate Larson is a Professor in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo where she also holds a University Research Chair and the Pasupalak AI Fellowship.
She is broadly interested in issues which arise in settings where groups of agents interact, where these agents may be AI-agents, humans, or a combination. In particular, she is interested in algorithmic questions arising in artificial intelligence and multiagent systems with a particular focus on algorithmic game theory, group decision making, preference and value modelling, and the insights that reinforcement learning can bring to these problems, along with ways of promoting Cooperative AI.
