The 2019 class of Forbes “30 under 30” spotlights fifteen Cornellians, including in the science category computer science's own Maithra Raghu, who earned her M.S. last year and is currently working toward her doctorate under Jon Kleinberg.
On her Forbes profile, Raghu’s work is described this way: “Deep neural networks are being used for a number of applications, but how they arrive at their results can sometimes be a black box. Maithra Raghu's research is aimed at understanding that black box and applying it to healthcare problems. In particular her work is aimed at determining whether a patient is likely to be misdiagnosed for a particular condition and thus in need of a second opinion.”
