Andrew Ng, Chief Scientist, Baidu

Andrew Ng is chief scientist of Baidu, chairman and cofounder of Coursera, and a computer science faculty member at Stanford. Ng's work spans AI, machine learning, and online education. His 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. Ng currently leads Baidu Research in developing the next generation of deep-learning algorithms.
