Haym Hirsh, professor of computer science in the Cornell Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science, is one of 12 Cornell and Weill Cornell Medicine faculty members who have been elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society.
Hirsh was recognized for contributions in machine learning, user modeling and recommendation systems, and extensive service to the AI community. Hirsh’s research has focused on foundations and applications of machine learning, data mining, information retrieval and artificial intelligence, especially targeting questions that integrally involve both people and computing.
The association elected 506 new fellows in 2022, honoring their efforts to advance research and its applications in scientifically or socially distinguished ways. New fellows will be presented with an official certificate and a rosette pin of gold and blue, representing science and engineering, respectively.
The AAAS will organize an in-person gathering in Washington, D.C., in the spring to celebrate the newest fellows.
