I received my MS and BS in symbolic systems from Stanford University in 2009, and my Ph D in cognitive science from MIT in 2014. Glushko Prize for Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation in Cognitive Science, I am an MIT Technology Review Innovator Under 35, and my research was selected by Scientific American as one of the most important advances of 2016.
My research focuses on computational problems that are easier for people than they are for machines, such as learning new concepts, creating new concepts, learning-to-learn, and asking questions.
Diffeo grew out of research in DARPA Memex and NIST’s TREC.
I am a research scientist at Facebook AI Research and an assistant professor of psychology and data science at New York University.

In Papafragou, A., Grodner, D., Mirman, D., & Trueswell, J. CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diffeo, Inc., the pioneering leader of collaborative machine intelligence, today announced that Max Kleiman-Weiner, Chief Scientist at Diffeo, has won the for his doctoral thesis “Computational foundations of human social intelligence.” The prize is presented by a committee of academic peers from across the behavioral science discipline.Kleiman-Weiner’s thesis focuses on understanding the cognitive structures behind human social intelligence by creating mathematically precise models of different social scenarios. Sequential images are not universal, or Caveats for using visual narratives in experimental tasks. Comics and Cognitive Systems: The processing of visual narratives. Together, the models generated by these examinations provide new insight into how social behavior is ultimately grounded in learned social intelligence.Glushko Dissertation Prizes are awarded via a joint partnership between the Cognitive Science Society and the Glushko-Samuelson Foundation.Diffeo discovers relationships in disparate data, in your cloud apps, your enterprise data portals, and on the Internet.Diffeo agents are augmenting decision makers in analyst teams and some of the most critical government institutions across the world.The prizes are intended to increase the prominence of cognitive science and encourage researchers to engage in interdisciplinary efforts to understand minds and intelligent systems.Areas of interest include psychology, computer science, philosophy, linguistics, anthropology, neuroscience and education.
