I am an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technion, working in the areas of Machine learning and theoretical neuroscience. I am especially interested in all aspects of neural networks and deep learning. I did my post-doc (as a Gruss Lipper fellow) working with Prof. Liam Paninski in the Department of Statistics, the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience the Grossman Center for Statistics of the Mind, the Kavli Institute for Brain Science, and the NeuroTechnology Center at Columbia University. I did my Ph.D. (2008-2013, direct track) in the Network Biology Research Laboratory in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technion, Israel Institute of technology, under the guidance of Prof. Ron Meir. In 2008 I graduated summa cum laude with a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and a B.Sc. in Physics, after studying in the Technion since 2004.

Freddie Kalaitzis

Freddie is a Senior Research Fellow at the Dept. of Computer Science, University of Oxford, investigating topics mainly in AI for Earth Observation. He is the principal investigator of OpenSR, a €1M government contract with ESA, to increase the safety of Super-Resolution technology for the Sentinel-2 archive. He is also an independent consultant, involved in projects where he leads teams in the Frontier Development Lab (FDL), a private-public partnership between NASA, SETI, and Trillium Technologies. His recent FDL projects were funded by NASA SMD to investigate the use of SAR imagery for disaster detection, and by the USGS to develop near-real-time water stream mapping from daily PlanetScope imagery. His most recent work is a survey on the State of AI for Earth Observation, in collaboration with Satellite Applications Catapult.

Hanie Sedghi (Google Brain)
Hanie Sedghi

I am a senior research scientist at Google Brain, where I lead the “Deep Phenomena” team. My approach is to bond theory and practice in large-scale machine learning by designing algorithms with theoretical guarantees that also work efficiently in practice. Over the recent years, I have been working on understanding and improving deep learning. Prior to Google, I was a Research Scientist at Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence and before that, a postdoctoral fellow at UC Irvine. I received my PhD from University of Southern California with a minor in mathematics in 2015.

Yoshua Bengio (Mila)

Yoshua Bengio is Full Professor in the computer science and operations research department at U. Montreal, scientific director and founder of Mila and of IVADO, Turing Award 2018 recipient, Canada Research Chair in Statistical Learning Algorithms, as well as a Canada AI CIFAR Chair. He pioneered deep learning and has been getting the most citations per day in 2018 among all computer scientists, worldwide. He is an officer of the Order of Canada, member of the Royal Society of Canada, was awarded the Killam Prize, the Marie-Victorin Prize and the Radio-Canada Scientist of the year in 2017, and he is a member of the NeurIPS advisory board and co-founder of the ICLR conference, as well as program director of the CIFAR program on Learning in Machines and Brains. His goal is to contribute to uncover the principles giving rise to intelligence through learning, as well as favour the development of AI for the benefit of all.
