Andrew Ng

Andrew researches primarily in machine learning and deep learning. His early work includes the Stanford Autonomous Helicopter project, which developed one of the most capable autonomous helicopters in the world, and the STAIR (Stanford Artificial Intelligence Robot) project, which resulted in ROS, a widely used open-source robotics software platform.
Andrew founded the Google Brain project, which developed very large scale artificial neural networks using Google’s distributed computer infrastructure. Among its notable results was a neural network trained using deep learning algorithms on 16,000 CPU cores, that learned to recognize higher-level concepts, such as cats, after watching only YouTube videos, and without ever having been told what a “cat” is. The project’s technology is currently also used in the Android Operating System’s speech recognition system.
