Discover the new web series on the common history between Yann LeCun and ESIEE Paris.
Yann LeCun, ESIEE Paris alumna (class of 1983), scientific director of artificial intelligence at Facebook and professor at the University of New York, received the Turing Prize (equivalent to the ‘Nobel Prize’ in computer science) in March 2019.
Yann LeCun has been rewarded for his pioneering work on the deep learning process or ‘Deep learning’ (enabling machines to carry out tasks which require reasoning) which contributed decisively towards the current artificial intelligence revolution.
By way of different teacher-researcher accounts, you will discover the beginnings of Yann LeCun at school: the discovery of backpropagation and the links that he kept with ESIEE Paris. There will be a new episode shown every week starting from 19th November.
