Geoffrey Hinton has enjoyed success as a technology professional, passionately spreading awareness of the implications of technology such as artificial intelligence. Famed for his role as the former Vice President and Engineering Fellow of Google, Geoffrey is renowned for leaving Google due to his concerns regarding the ethics of AI and the dangers of AI as it takes over our lives. Today, Geoffrey is committed to his role as the Chief Scientific Adviser of the Vector Institute and the Professor of Computer Science at the University of Toronto. Having devoted his focus to AI and the programming of neural networks, Geoffrey is now highly sought after as a keynote speaker on AI to share his expertise on how humankind will be affected by artificial intelligence.
An illustrious career, that began as a Research Fellow in the Cognitive Studies Program at Sussex University, Geoffrey has forged a successful academic career. Sparking a passion for academia, Geoffrey has also worked as a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, a Scientific Officer at the MRC Applied Psychology Unit and an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie-Mellon University. In addition to teaching roles, Geoffrey also marked his prominence as the founding Director of the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit at UCL.
Dedicated to the training of neural networks, Geoffrey is also acclaimed for having popularised the backpropagation method and for introducing the new algorithm Forward-Forward – knowledge that also fosters his reputation as an expert on machine learning. Geoffrey is also highly acclaimed for having published over 200 peer-reviewed articles, and for his illustrious work on the image-recognition convolutional neural network architecture, AlexNet. In recognition of his truly remarkable career, Geoffrey has been the recipient of the prestigious ACM A.M Turing Award, the Companion of the Order of Canada, the IEEE RSE James Clerk Maxwell Gold Medal, the IEEE Frank Rosenblatt Medal and the IEEE Neural Networks Pioneer Award. Alongside such awards, Geoffrey has also been honoured to become a Fellow of the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Canada, along with being a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
With a distinguished career in machine learning, neural network programming and artificial intelligence to his name, Geoffrey is now highly sought after to share his authority on AI at corporate events. A seasoned speaker, Geoffrey has already delivered a variety of keynote speeches for top clients – including keynote speeches on machine learning for the Royal Society and on AI for the Rotman Business School. Having guided countless students to secure higher education, Geoffrey is also pioneering the future generation of AI enthusiasts, having taught students on speech recognition AI, neural networks, generative models and deep learning. When looking for a distinguished AI expert with an all-encompassing knowledge of machine learning and AI, hire Geoffrey Hinton today.
