Last summer, I spent several months working with Google’s Knowledge team in Mountain View, working with Jeff Dean and an incredible group of scientists and engineers who have a real shot at making spectacular progress in machine learning. Together with two of my recent graduate students, Ilya Sutskever and Alex Krizhevsky (who won the 2012 ImageNet competition), I am betting on Google’s team to be the epicenter of future breakthroughs. That means we’ll soon be joining Google to work with some of the smartest engineering minds to tackle some of the biggest challenges in computer science. I’ll remain part-time at the University of Toronto, where I still have a lot of excellent graduate students, but at Google I will get to see what we can do with very large-scale computation.
I am very excited thatand two of his Ph.D. students, and , will be joining Google to apply large-scale machine learning to a variety of different domains. I had a great time working with Geoff when he visited Google for two months last summer, and I look forward to our future collaboration!
Can't wait to see what comes of this!should do a tech talk for the engineering interns this summer!
