Joaquin Quiñonero Candela

Menlo Park, United States

Joaquin Quiñonero Candela leads the technical strategy for Responsible AI at Facebook, including areas like fairness and inclusiveness, robustness, privacy, transparency and accountability. As part of this focus, he serves on the Board of Directors of the Partnership on AI, an organization interested in the societal consequences of artificial intelligence, and on the Spanish National Advisory Council on AI.

Before this he built the AML (Applied Machine Learning) team at Facebook, driving product impact at scale through applied research in machine learning, language understanding, computer vision, computational photography, augmented reality and other AI disciplines. AML also built the unified AI platform that powers all production applications of AI across the family of Facebook products.

Prior to Facebook, Joaquin built and taught a new machine learning course at the University of Cambridge, worked at Microsoft Research, and conducted postdoctoral research at three institutions in Germany, including the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics. He received his PhD from the Technical University of Denmark.
