humans + machines = ?

I want to make machine learning systems more robust and reliable. I am particularly interested in how interaction with humans can help ensure that a system has learned the correct objective or behavior.

I am currently a research intern at OpenAI. I will be starting my PhD in the fall at UC Berkeley, where I also did my undergrad. I am a part of the Center for Human-Compatible AI and the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research Lab.

I spend a lot of time introspecting on my own styles of thinking and productivity. Here is some collected research advice. Outside of research I enjoy talking to strangers, reading both nonfiction and fiction, and recently improv.

If you want to talk, feel free to shoot me an email at smitha dot milli at gmail dot com.
