Tom Dietterich, BirdCast Alumnus Professor and Director of Intelligent Systems Research, Oregon State University.

Tom Dietterich led the development and application of advanced machine learning algorithms to model bird migration. These algorithms analyzed the data provided by eBird volunteers, weather radar imagery, and weather forecasts to discover migration patterns and understand the factors that affect the speed and direction of bird flight during migration. Dietterich is President-Elect of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
