The U of M will lead a $2M NSF grant developing a system to study AI-powered news recommender systems. The grant is part of the NSF’s Computer and Information Science and Engineering Community Research Infrastructure program. The project will develop a shared news recommender system that will allow researchers to carry out research into users of AI recommender systems.
MSI PI Joe Konstan (professor, Computer Science and Engineering) is leading this project. He uses MSI resources for studies of algorithmic recommender systems.
A story about the grant appears on the U of M News website: U of M to lead federal grant to study human-centered AI for news recommender systems.
