Bio
I am an adjunct professor in computer science at the MILA machine learning institute, University of Montreal, Canada, and co-founder at Twenty Billion Neurons GmbH, a German-Canadian Deep Learning startup.
Before joining the University of Montreal, I have been an assistant professor in Frankfurt and a researcher in Zurich, Princeton and Toronto. I received the PhD from the University of Toronto in 2008 where I was advised by Geoffrey Hinton.
