Yoshua Bengio, October 27, 2016
|Born||1964 (age 54–55)|
|Alma mater||McGill University|
|Known for||Deep Learning, Neural machine translation, Generative Adversarial Networks, Word embeddings, Denoising Auto-Encoders, neural language models, Curriculum Learning, Learning to learn|
|Institutions||Université de Montréal|
|Thesis||Artificial Neural Networks and their Application to Sequence Recognition (1991)|
|Doctoral advisor||Renato de Mori|
|Notable students||Ian Goodfellow, Hugo Larochelle, Pascal Vincent, Nicolas Chapados, Kyunghyun Cho, Antoine Bordes, Aaron Courville, Narjes Boufaden|
Bengio received his Bachelor of Engineering (electrical engineering), Master of Science (computer science) and PhD (computer science) from McGill University. He was a post-doctoral fellow at MIT (under Michael I. Jordan) and AT&T Bell Labs. Bengio has been a faculty member at the Université de Montréal since 1993, heads the MILA (Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms) and is co-director of the Learning in Machines & Brains project of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research.
Along with Geoffrey Hinton and Yann LeCun, Bengio is considered by Cade Metz one of the three people most responsible for the advancement of deep learning during the 1990s and 2000s. Whereas the other two went to work for Google and Facebook respectively, Bengio has stayed in academia. Among the computer scientists with an h-index of at least 100, Bengio is the one with the most recent citations per day, according to MILA.
In October 2016, Bengio co-founded Element AI, a Montreal-based artificial intelligence incubator that turns AI research into real-world business applications. In May 2017, Bengio announced that he was joining Montreal-based legal tech startup Botler AI, as a strategy adviser.
