Xiao Ma


My research aims to provide a better understanding of how Artificial Intelligence (AI) mediates social exchange. As AI agents increasingly mediate how people interact with each other and access information, an interdisciplinary perspective is necessary for understanding such mediation, as well as for designing and building such technology. Before joining Google, I did my PhD research in the (then) nascent Cornell Tech campus of CornelL University in New York City, where I pioneered research on the computational understanding of trust in peer-to-peer marketplaces and social networks.
