Science is built up with data, as a house is with stones. But a collection of data is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house. (J.H. Poincaré)

John Co-Reyes (UC Berkeley)

Interested in solving intelligence. Currently working on hierarchical reinforcement learning and learning a physical intuition of the world.

Jeff Orchard (University of Waterloo)

Jeff Orchard received degrees in applied mathematics from the University of Waterloo (BMath) and the University of British Columbia (MSc), and received his PhD in Computing Science from Simon Fraser University in 2003. Since then, he has been a faculty member in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. His main research focus is on computational neuroscience and artificial intelligence, using mathematical models and computer simulations of neural networks to understand how the brain works. He has also published research papers in image processing, medical imaging, and graphics.

Vikash Mansinghka (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

Vikash Mansinghka is a research scientist at MIT, where he leads the Probabilistic Computing Project. Vikash holds S.B. degrees in Mathematics and in Computer Science from MIT, as well as an M.Eng. in Computer Science and a PhD in Computation. He also held graduate fellowships from the National Science Foundation and MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory. His PhD dissertation on natively probabilistic computation won the MIT George M. Sprowls dissertation award in computer science, and his research on the Picture probabilistic programming language won an award at CVPR. He served on DARPA’s Information Science and Technology advisory board from 2010-2012, and currently serves on the editorial boards for the Journal of Machine Learning Research and the journal Statistics and Computation. He was an advisor to Google DeepMind and has co-founded two AI-related startups, one acquired and one currently operational.
