Technion Program for Excellence

Drew Hudson Arad / Computer Science

Bs.c. in computer science.

Participated in the Technion Excellence Program: Winter 2009 – 2013.

Drew started her Bs.c. studies in computer science at the age of 14, and finished in 2013.

Recommendation for current students in the program: “Get involved in research as early as possible! It will be enormously beneficial either in industry or when starting graduate studies.”

In 2012-13 Drew was working at Google, focusing on data processing systems and NLP.

Drew was the recipient of the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship (2013, EMEA) for leading women in Computer Science. The scholarship is awarded based on academic background and demonstrated leadership.

Today (2017): “I am a Ph.D. student at Stanford University, doing research in artificial intelligence, and in particular, about machine learning and natural language processing. I am looking into ways to endow deep-learning models with reasoning and memory capabilities for tasks such as reading comprehension and questions answering.”
