Curtis G. Northcutt

Principal AI Scientist

PhD candidate in Computer Science at MIT, NSF Fellowship and MITx Digital Research Fellowship. His work focuses on two goals:

(1) Characterizing and fixing label errors in machine learning datasets,
(2) using artificial intelligence to enable human intelligence.

He invented confident learning, a family of theory and algorithms for learning label errors, and created clean lab, a python package using confident learning to find label errors in datasets, characterize label noise, and learn with noisy labels.

Received MIT Morris Joseph Levin Masters Thesis Award, an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, the Barry M Goldwater National Scholarship, and the Vanderbilt Founder’s Medal.
