Sebnem Ozdemir received her B.Sc. degree in Mathematics (Yıldız Technical University), as well as the M.A. in Mathematics Education and M.Sc. in Informatics (İstanbul University). She received her Ph.D. degree from İstanbul University (IU), İstanbul Turkey. She was a visiting researcher in Electronics and Computing Engineering Department (Worcester Polytechnic Institute- WPI) for her postdoc research, Worcester, MA, USA. She currently holds the position of Assistant Professor and Head of Department in the Department of Management Information Systems, Istinye University, İstanbul, Turkey. Besides, she works for Massachusetts Institute of Technology Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (MIT CSAIL). With the machine learning based model, she built, Mrs. Ozdemir was received the “Contribution to Human Development Award” by Koc University UNESCO Chair. Earlier this year (2018), she began to integrate a new and closely-related research stream with her students, which is called “Deep Projects,” that involves deep learning algorithms and methodologies. The first of these projects, “Deep Classical Art,” relates to pattern recognition and reproductions, which are hidden in the Anatolian and Ottoman art, such as marbling (Ebru), ornamentation (Tezhip), and tapis. Prior to the aforementioned projects, she used mathematical modelling to predict juvenile crime. Her work with others on a multidisciplinary project team led to the design and implementation of decision support systems that identifies at-risk children. She has many published papers, book chapters and patents related to data science and machine learning. Ozdemir’s research fields are artificial intelligence, data science, management information systems, decision making, mathematical modelling.
