Andrew Ng, Chief Scientist, Baidu

Andrew Ng is Chief Scientist of Baidu, Chairman and Co-Founder of Coursera, and a Computer Science faculty member at Stanford. Ng's work spans both AI/machine learning, and online education. Ng's AI work focuses on deep learning, which develops learning algorithms by building large scale simulations of the brain. In 2011, he founded and led the Google Brain project, which built the largest deep learning (neural network) systems at the time, leading to the celebrated "Google cat" result. His team's technology has also had a huge impact across numerous Google applications, including speech recognition, maps, and more. More recently, Ng joined Baidu, where he leads Baidu Research in developing the next generation of deep learning algorithms.
