Soumith Chintala is a Researcher at Facebook AI Research, where he works on deep learning, reinforcement learning, generative image models, agents for video games and large-scale high-performance deep learning. Prior to joining Facebook in August 2014, he worked at MuseAmi, where he built deep learning models for music and vision targeted at mobile devices. He holds a Masters in CS from NYU, and spent time in Yann LeCun’s NYU lab building deep learning models for pedestrian detection, natural image OCR, depth-images among others.
Upcoming Abstract Summary
Increasing the Impact of AI Through Better Software:
The state of artificial intelligence is continuing to advance rapidly, with breakthroughs in areas from reinforcement learning to generative adversarial networks holding the potential to transform how we go about our day-to-day. Learn about how modern software frameworks and tooling, paired with cutting edge hardware, are enabling researchers to take state-of-the-art research and deploy at scale in areas from autonomous vehicles to medical imaging. We’ll deep dive on the latest updates to the PyTorch deep learning framework, including distributed training, the C++ frontend, quantization, and new libraries to support development.
