TFA Spotlight: Kathleen McKeown

Kathleen McKeown’s foundational work in natural language processing has enabled smarter systems for critical functions in society, including health, well-being, and disaster relief. She has created methods that summarize and analyze news reports on past disasters to provide updates on current disasters as they unfold. Her work in social media uses data science to understand the personal narratives of those who have experienced a disaster and employs sentiment detection to identify where people are still suffering. 

Kathleen is receiving the 2023 IEEE Innovation in Societal Infrastructure Award “for pushing the boundaries of natural language processing for social media analysis, news summarization, crisis informatics, and creating a digital library for patient care.”

.” A special thank you to the award’s sponsors Hitachi Ltdand the IEEE Computer Society.

Kathleen was presented at 5 June during the 2023 IEEE Conference on Artificial Intelligence (CAI) in Santa Clara, California, USA.
