SEAS Student Profile | By Matt Goisman
CS student helps NGO launch pilot program
Aditya Mate finished his undergraduate studies with plans to pursue a far different path than the one he followed. He’d earned an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering in his native India, and initially applied to Ph.D. programs in that same field. It wasn’t until after he’d been accepted to the University of Southern California that he came across the work of Milind Tambe, who at the time was the co-director of USC’s Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society and whose lab combined computer science with social impact.
