Last week, the Nobel Prize of tech (Turing Award) was awarded to the ‘godfathers of AI,’ Yoshua Bengio, Geoffrey Hinton and Yann LeCun - three of the most prominent minds behind deep learning’s recent explosion – with a $1 million prize funded by Google.
We have had the honour of both Yann and Yoshua headlining at World Summit AI Amsterdam in the last couple of years – cementing the World Summit AI Global series as THE place to hear from the true pioneers as well as those leading in the business applications of AI. You can meet Joshua at World Summit AI Americas next week where he will present his latest findings on moving beyond supervised deep learning.
Working independently and together, Yoshua, Geoff and Yann developed conceptual foundations for the field, identified surprising phenomena through experiments, and contributed engineering advances that demonstrated the practical advantages of deep neural networks.
The award marks the latest recognition of the instrumental role that AI will play in redefining the relationship between humanity and technology in the years ahead.
We salute you three! And Geoff, we’re just waiting for you to join us:)
