University of Washington computer science professor Yejin Choi has been awarded a 2022 "genius grant" fellowship by the MacArthur Foundation.

Choi applies natural language processing to develop artificial intelligence (AI) systems capable of understanding implied meanings in human languages. She has created models that absorb text and image inputs and has used computational linguistics to help AI detect sentiment or misleading intent in writing.
