Ilya Sutskever
Research Director, OpenAI


I received my PhD in 2012 from the University of Toronto working with Geoffrey Hinton. After a brief postdoc with Andrew Ng, I cofounded DNNResearch with Geoffrey Hinton and Alex Krizhevsky, which was acquired by Google from stealth mode. I am interested in all aspects of neural networks and their applications.
