Speaker: Sumit Chopra, Research Scientist at Facebook, Ph.D. in computer science from New York University.
Sumit graduated with a Ph.D., in computer science from New York University in 2008. His thesis proposed a first of its kind neural network model for doing relational regression, and was a conceptual foundation for a startup company for modeling residential real estate prices. Following his Ph.D., he joined AT&T Labs - Research as a research scientist in the machine learning department, where he focused on building novel deep learning models for speech recognition, natural language processing, and computer vision. While at AT&T he also worked on other areas of machine learning, such as, recommender systems, computational advertisement, and ranking. He has been a research scientist at Facebook AI Research since April 2014, where he has been focusing primarily on language understanding.
Deep learning models with applications to natural language processing and computer vision.
