IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization, has elevated LLNL research staff member Bhavya Kailkhura to the grade of senior member within the organization. IEEE has more than 427,000 members in more than 190 countries, including engineers, scientists and allied professionals in the electrical and computer sciences, engineering and related disciplines. Just 10% of IEEE’s members hold the status of senior membership, which reflects professional maturity and requires extensive experience and documented achievements, according to IEEE. It is the highest grade for which IEEE members can apply. A computer scientist in LLNL’s Center for Applied Scientific Computing, Kailkhura’s research interests include safe and trustworthy artificial intelligence (AI), efficient machine learning and their application to scientific applications. “As an IEEE senior member, I am honored to be recognized for my contributions to the field of safe and trustworthy AI,” Kailkhura said. “This prestigious acknowledgment not only symbolizes personal growth but also underscores LLNL’s consistent commitment to pioneering research that ensures the development of dependable AI, aligning with [President Biden’s] recent AI Executive Order, for the nation’s security and scientific advancements.” Read more at LLNL News.
