SCS Professor Eric Xing received a 2022 Amazon Research Award, which supports research at academic institutions and nonprofits in areas that align with the organization's mission to advance customer-obsessed science.

Eric Xing, a professor in the Machine Learning Department, the Computer Science Department and the Language Technologies Institute, is one of 26 recipients of the 2022 Amazon Research Awards (ARA) for his project titled, "A Faster and More Accurate Secure Model Serving Framework on the Cloud."

The ARA provides recipients with unrestricted funds and Amazon Web Services (AWS) promotional credits with access to more than 300 Amazon public data sets. These awards support research at academic institutions and nonprofit organizations in areas that align with the organization's mission "to advance customer-obsessed science."

"Scientists and engineers are at their best when they're inventing on behalf of customers," said Brent Werness, manager of applied science with Machine Learning University at AWS. "But how does that invention happen? And what can we do to help scientists and engineers do their best work? Answering these questions requires a sustained, interdisciplinary research agenda, and our 2022 Amazon Research Award recipients will take one more step toward understanding."
