Yolanda Gil to Lead AAAI

June 8, 2016

ISI artificial intelligence researcher Yolanda Gil has been elected president of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), the world's premiere organization of AI researchers.

Founded in 1979, the AAAI has more than 4,000 members internationally. Past presidents have included such computer science luminaries as Allen Newell, Raj Reddy and Edward Feigenbaum.

The organization, which seeks to promote AI research and responsible use, hosts one of the leading annual AI conferences and supports 14 professional journals, among many other activities. Gil served on the AAAI Council until 2006, and was elected to the prestigious post of AAAI Fellow in 2012.

An ISI research director and USC Viterbi School of Engineering research professor, she'll be the organization's 24th president and its fourth female leader. Gil was also chair of the Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group in Artificial Intelligence, among other research community leadership roles.

"We're extremely proud of Yolanda's professional achievements and generous spirit," says University of Southern California ISI Michael Keston Executive Director and Research Professor Prem Natarajan. "Not only does this election recognize Yolanda's significant and longstanding contributions to the AI community, it reinforces ISI's standing among computer science researchers and practitioners around the globe."
