Yoshua Bengio (Mila / U. Montreal)

Yoshua Bengio is Full Professor in the computer science and operations research department at U. Montreal, scientific director and founder of Mila and of IVADO, Turing Award 2018 recipient, Canada Research Chair in Statistical Learning Algorithms, as well as a Canada AI CIFAR Chair. He pioneered deep learning and has been getting the most citations per day in 2018 among all computer scientists, worldwide. He is an officer of the Order of Canada, member of the Royal Society of Canada, was awarded the Killam Prize, the Marie-Victorin Prize and the Radio-Canada Scientist of the year in 2017, and he is a member of the NeurIPS advisory board and co-founder of the ICLR conference, as well as program director of the CIFAR program on Learning in Machines and Brains. His goal is to contribute to uncover the principles giving rise to intelligence through learning, as well as favour the development of AI for the benefit of all.

Evgeny Burnaev (Skoltech)

Evgeny Burnaev obtained his MSc in Applied Physics and Mathematics from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 2006. After successfully defending his PhD thesis in Foundations of Computer Science at the Institute for Information Transmission Problem RAS (IITP RAS) in 2008, Evgeny stayed with the Institute as a head of IITP Data Analysis and Predictive Modeling Lab. Since 2007 Evgeny Burnaev carried out a number of successful industrial projects with Airbus, SAFT, IHI, and Sahara Force India Formula 1 team among others. The corresponding data analysis algorithms, developed by Evgeny Burnaev and his scientific group, formed a core of the algorithmic software library for metamodeling and optimization. Thanks to the developed functionality, engineers can construct fast mathematical approximations to long running computer codes (realizing physical models) based on available data and perform design space exploration for trade-off studies. The software library passed the final Technology Readiness Level 6 certification in Airbus. According to Airbus experts, application of the library “provides the reduction of up to 10% of lead time and cost in several areas of the aircraft design process”. Nowadays a spin-off company Datadvance develops a Software platform for Design Space Exploration with GUI based on this algorithmic core. Since 2016 Evgeny Burnaev works as Associate Professor of Skoltech and manages his research group for Advanced Data Analytics in Science and Engineering For his scientific achievements in the year 2017 Evgeny Burnaev was honored with the Moscow Government Prize for Young Scientists in the category for the Transmission, Storage, Processing and Protection of Information for leading the project “The development of methods for predictive analytics for processing industrial, biomedical and financial data.”
