Gebru is the Technical co-lead of the Ethical Artificial Intelligence Team at Google. She was previously a postdoc at Microsoft Research, New York City in the FATE (Fairness Transparency Accountability and Ethics in AI) group, where she studied algorithmic bias and the ethical implications underlying any data mining project (see this New York Times article for an example of her work). She received a PhD from the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, studying computer vision under Fei-Fei Li. Her thesis pertained to data mining large scale publicly available images to gain sociological insight, and working on computer vision problems that arise as a result.
