Graduate Student, MIT Media Lab, Personal Robots Group
Ishaan is a PhD graduate research assistant with the Personal Robots Group at the MIT Media Lab. His research
interests lie in Machine Learning and its applications in the field of human-robot interaction and early-literacy education. His recent work focused on building graphical models using word semantics for predicting children’s vocabulary from partial information about their existing vocabulary. Prior to this, he worked on algorithms to enable reinforcement learning agents to learn from human feedback. In industry, he has interned at Apple, Palantir and Microsoft where he worked on applications ranging from natural language understanding to anomaly detection.
