Bio
I am the Sr. Director of AI at Tesla, where I lead the team responsible for all neural networks on the Autopilot. Previously, I was a Research Scientist at OpenAI working on Deep Learning in Computer Vision, Generative Modeling and Reinforcement Learning. I received my PhD from Stanford, where I worked with Fei-Fei Li on Convolutional/Recurrent Neural Network architectures and their applications in Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing and their intersection. Over the course of my PhD I squeezed in two internships at Google where I worked on large-scale feature learning over YouTube videos, and in 2015 I interned at DeepMind on the Deep Reinforcement Learning team. Together with Fei-Fei, I designed and was the primary instructor for a new Stanford class on Convolutional Neural Networks for Visual Recognition (CS231n).
