Becoming a Professor
Joi Ito

Joi, congratulations on your appointment.

Having spent time at the labs, seen the work, and observed your leadership, this is truly a good thing. I have every confidence in your contribution.

From my perspective, this also represents something even more exciting than one persons journey. The unorthodox appointment to the ML directorship and professorship represents a recognition that sources of knowledge and wisdom are diverse.

I congratulate MIT for its wisdom and courage to continue to evolve a great institution by making unorthodox decisions to advance learning.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
