Eero Simoncelli (HHMI / New York University)

Eero P. Simoncelli received the B.S. degree in Physics in 1984 from Harvard University, studied applied mathematics at Cambridge University for a year and a half, and then received the M.S. degree in 1988 and the Ph.D. degree in 1993, both in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was an Assistant Professor in the Computer and Information Science department at the University of Pennsylvania from 1993 until 1996. He moved to New York University in September of 1996, where he is currently a Professor in Neural Science, Mathematics, and Psychology. In August 2000, he became an Associate Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, under their new program in Computational Biology. His research interests span a wide range of topics in the representation and analysis of visual images, in both machine and biological systems.

Samuel Greydanus (Oregon State University)

I am a recent graduate of Dartmouth College, where I majored in physics and dabbled in everything else. I have interned at CERN, Microsoft Azure, and the DARPA Explainable AI Project. I like to use memory-based models to generate sequences and policies. So far, I have used them to approximate the Enigma cipher, generate realistic handwriting, and visualize how reinforcement-learning agents play Atari games. One of my priorities as a scientist is to explain my work clearly and make it easy to replicate.

Gauri Jagatap (Iowa State University)

Graduate student at Iowa State University

Chinmay Hegde (Iowa State University)
Michael Kellman (University of California Berkeley)

I am a PhD graduate student at UC Berkeley in the EECS department, where I work on problems in the fields of signal processing, computational imaging, and machine learning. I am advised by Prof. Laura Waller and Prof. Michael Lustig and am funded by NSF GRFP. I am also affiliated with the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research Laboratory and the Berkeley Center for Computational Imaging. In broadest terms, the goal of my research is to improve the limitation of modern computational imaging systems through data-driven design. I'm particularly interested in the areas of signal processing, machine learning theory, image reconstruction algorithms, and optical modeling. Specifically, my work is focused on the applications of microscopy, medical imaging, and photography.

Ousmane Dia (Element AI)
Mirco Ravanelli (Montreal Istitute for Learning Algorithms)

I received my master's degree in Telecommunications Engineering (full marks and honours) from the University of Trento, Italy in 2011. I then joined the SHINE research group (led by Prof. Maurizio Omologo) of the Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK), contributing to some projects on distant-talking speech recognition in noisy and reverberant environments, such as DIRHA and DOMHOS. In 2013 I was visiting researcher at the International Computer Science Institute (University of California, Berkeley) working on deep neural networks for large-vocabulary speech recognition in the context of the IARPA BABEL project (led by Prof. Nelson Morgan). I received my PhD (with cum laude distinction) in Information and Communication Technology from the University of Trento in December 2017. During my PhD I worked on “deep learning for distant speech recognition”, with a particular focus on recurrent and cooperative neural networks (see my PhD thesis here). In the context of my PhD I recently spent 6 months in the MILA lab led by Prof. Yoshua Bengio. I'm currently a post-doc researcher at the University of Montreal, working on deep learning for speech recognition in the MILA Lab.

Simon Lacoste-Julien is an associate professor at Mila and DIRO from Université de Montréal, and Canada CIFAR AI Chair holder. He also heads part time the SAIT AI Lab Montreal from Samsung. His research interests are machine learning and applied math, with applications in related fields like computer vision and natural language processing. He obtained a B.Sc. in math., physics and computer science from McGill, a PhD in computer science from UC Berkeley and a post-doc from the University of Cambridge. He spent a few years as a research faculty at INRIA and École normale supérieure in Paris before coming back to his roots in Montreal in 2016 to answer the call from Yoshua Bengio in growing the Montreal AI ecosystem.
