Thomas G. Dietterich (AB Oberlin College 1977; MS University of Illinois 1979; PhD Stanford University 1984) is a
professor emeritus and director of intelligent systems
research in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University, where he joined
the faculty in 1985. Dietterich has devoted his career to
machine learning and artificial intelligence. He has
authored more than 180 publications and two books. His
research is motivated by challenging real world problems
with a special focus on ecological science, ecosystem management, and sustainable development. Dietterich has
devoted many years of service to the research community.
He is past president of AAAI, and he previously served as
president of AAAI (2014-16) and as the founding president
of the International Machine Learning Society (2001-08).
Other major roles include executive editor of the journal
Machine Learning (1992-98), co-founder of the Journal for
Machine Learning Research (2000), and program chair of AAAI
1990 and NIPS 2000. Dietterich is a Fellow of the ACM,
AAAS, and AAAI.
Save the Date for ICWSM- 18!
Please join us for the Twelfth International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media, to be held at Stanford
University, Stanford, California, USA, June 24–28, 2018.
This interdisciplinary conference is a forum for
researchers in computer science and social science to
come together to share knowledge, discuss ideas,
exchange information, and learn about cutting-edge
research in diverse fields with the common theme of
online social media. This overall theme includes
research in new perspectives in social theories, as well
as computational algorithms for analyzing social media.
ICWSM is a singularly fitting venue for research that
blends social science and computational approaches to
answer important and challenging questions about
human social behavior through social media while
advancing computational tools for vast and unstructured data.
