An exclusive for the 2020 edition, listen into a discussion between Lex Fridman and Ilya Sutskever on exciting, recent advancements and what the future looks like for the industry.
Lex Fridman is a postdoc at MIT, working on computer vision and deep learning approaches in the context of self-driving cars with a human-in-the-loop. His work focuses on large-scale, real-world data, with the goal of building intelligent systems that have real world impact. Lex received his BS, MS, and PhD from Drexel University where he worked on applications of machine learning, computer vision, and decision fusion techniques in a number of fields including robotics, active authentication, activity recognition, and optimal resource allocation on multi-commodity networks. Before joining MIT, Lex was at Google working on machine learning and decision fusion methods for large-scale behavior-based authentication.
Ilya Sutskever received his PhD in 2012 from the University of Toronto working with Geoffrey Hinton. After completing his PhD, he cofounded DNNResearch with Geoffrey Hinton and Alex Krizhevsky which was acquired by Google. He is interested in all aspects of neural networks and their applications.
