About Me

I’m Stephen Scarano, a postgrad (M.S) of Computer Science and Bay State Fellow from the University of Massachusettes, Amherst. My interests span both traditional and deep machine learning algorithms, computer vision, and responsible AI.


I’m originally from Harvard, MA (not the school) and after completing my bachelor’s of science at UMass Amherst, I was a grateful recipient of a Bay State Fellowship, which allowed me to continue my education further.

In graduate school I took an interest in ironing-out the failings of contemporary machine learning algorithms. While my work in Responsible AI has accentuated and formalized these problems, my prior work in computer vision reminds me why these methods were attractive in the first place. There are simply many problems (particularly describing qualitative phenomena) where traditional methods fall flat. The goal, then, is to innovate intentionally for the best of both worlds.


I completed both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
