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.

The crazy-cool micro quadcopter #crazyflie . Such a lovely sound: we could almost imagine a hummingbird flapping its wings.

"Designing Robot Learners that Ask Good Questions" presented last Tuesday at #HRI2012 was certainly one of the talk I found the most interesting, inspiring. Make sure to check out the coverage it got in the Science Daily.
