UoT’s Deep Learning group’s startup acqui-hired by Google

Google acquired the new startup, DNNResearch, established by Geoffrey Hinton and his two graduate students Ilya Sutskever and Alex Krishevsky. The same team won the Imagenet Challenge in 2012. Hinton and his team is going to focus on improving the Deep Learning applications already being used by Google.

As part of his new job, G. Hinton is going to stay with U. Toronto, splitting his time between Google and his duties at the University of Toronto, while Krizhevsky and Sutskever fly south to work at Google’s Mountain View, California campus.

  • Will do Emma! I saw that you didn’t think the colour was right for you alright, will let you know what I’m matched to (and if it does match not always the case!). You have nicer skin than me though so I hope this covers a bit as I’m super blotchy with loads of acne scars and rosacea redness…
