Big news today!
Facebook has created a new research laboratory with the ambitious, long-term goal of bringing about major advances in Artificial Intelligence.
I am thrilled to announce that I have accepted the position of director of this new lab. I will remain a professor at New York University on a part-time basis, and will maintain research and teaching activities at NYU.
Simultaneously, Facebook and New York University's Center for Data Science are entering a partnership to carry out research in data science, machine learning, and AI.
The new AI Group at Facebook will have locations in Menlo Park, CA, in London, UK, and at Facebook's new facility in New York City, one block away from NYU's main campus.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, CTO Michael Schroepfer and I are at the Neural Information Processing Systems Conference in Lake Tahoe today. Mark will announce the news during his presentation at the NIPS Workshop on Deep Learning later today.
And we are hiring!https://www.facebook.com/yann.lecun/posts/10151728212367143
