Jason Yosinski
Jason Yosinski is a machine learning researcher and founding member of Uber AI Labs, where he uses neural networks to build more capable and more understandable AI. He suspects scientists and engineers will build increasingly powerful AI systems faster than we can understand them, motivating much of his work on what has been called "AI Neuroscience" -- an emerging field that may become increasingly important in the next several years. Dr. Yosinski was previously a PhD student and NASA Space Technology Research Fellow working at the Cornell Creative Machines Lab, the University of Montreal, the Caltech Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Google DeepMind. His work on AI has been featured on NPR, Fast Company, the Economist, TEDx, and on the BBC. In his free time, Jason enjoys cooking, sailing, reading, and sometimes pretending he’s an artist.
