Lilian Weng (OpenAI)

Lilian Weng is working at OpenAI over a variety of research and applied projects. In the Robotics team, she worked on several challenging robotic manipulation tasks, including solving a fully scrambled Rubik's cube with a single robot hand, via deep reinforcement learning and sim2real transfer techniques. Currently she leads the Applied AI Research team to use powerful language models to solve real-world applications. Her research interests are quite broad, as she writes about various topics in deep learning in her highly viewed ML blog https://lilianweng.github.io/lil-log/.

Toshiharu Sugawara (Waseda University)
Kenny Young (University of Alberta)
Tianmin Shu (University of California, Los Angeles)
Jonas Gehring (Facebook AI Research)
Ahmad Beirami (Electronic Arts)

Ahmad Beirami is a research scientist at Facebook AI, leading research to power the next generation of virtual digital assistants with AR/VR capabilities. His research broadly involves learning models with robustness and fairness considerations in large-scale systems. Prior to that, he led the AI agent research program for automated playtesting of video games at Electronic Arts. Before moving to industry in 2018, he held a joint postdoctoral fellow position at Harvard & MIT, focused on problems in the intersection of core machine learning and information theory. He is the recipient of the 2015 Sigma Xi Best PhD Thesis Award from Georgia Tech, for his work on the fundamental limits of efficient communication over IoT networks.
