Pascal Vincent

Montreal, Canada

Pascal Vincent is a Research Scientist at Facebook AI Research (FAIR) in Montreal, as well as an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research at Université de Montréal, a founding member of the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA) and Associate Fellow in the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR / Learning Machines and Brains program). Pascal has been conducting research on artificial neural networks since 1995 and completed a PhD in computer-science/machine-learning at Université de Montréal under the direction of Yoshua Bengio in 2004. Pascal's primary research focus is the development of original approaches for representation learning that aim to be both statistically and computationally efficient, in order to enable the learning of more meaningful and practically useful representations across multiple application domains such as vision and language understanding.
