[D] Yann LeCun: Deep Learning, Convolutional Neural Networks, and Self-Supervised Learning | Artificial Intelligence Podcast

[D] Yann LeCun: Deep Learning, Convolutional Neural Networks, and Self-Supervised Learning | Artificial Intelligence Podcast

Yann LeCun is one of the fathers of deep learning, the recent revolution in AI that has captivated the world with the possibility of what machines can learn from data. He is a professor at New York University, a Vice President & Chief AI Scientist at Facebook, co-recipient of the Turing Award for his work on deep learning. He is probably best known as the founder of convolutional neural networks, in particular their early application to optical character recognition. This conversation is part of the Artificial Intelligence podcast:
