Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the new normal which is rapidly advancing the technology sector and has also significantly impacted the key aspects of businesses.
In this article, we list down AI’s power players who are also thought leaders in the area of machine learning (ML), deep learning, computer vision, and robotics and also have a massive following on their Twitter accounts. These AI giants includes industry experts, product innovators, and researchers who bring the latest insights and popular AI trends to their followers.
Here are top twitter accounts that will help you keep a track of all exciting AI updates:
David Ha, a Google researcher and one of the authors of the NeurIPS paper “Weight Agnostic Neural Networks”.
Judea Pearl is a chancellor, philosopher, and a professor of computer science and statistics at UCLA, and also a distinguished visiting professor at the Technion — Israel Institute of Technology.
Pearl has authored numerous scientific papers and three seminal books — Heuristics (1983), Probabilistic Reasoning (1988), and Causality (2000, 2009). In a recent book, “The Book of Why” (2018, with Dana Mackenzie) Pearl explains the concept of cause and effect, which is a grand taboo in science and has been algorithmitized to serve in the interpretation of data.
In 2012, he won the Technion’s Harvey Prize and the ACM Alan Turing Award for the development of a calculus for probabilistic and causal reasoning.
Yann Lecun is VP and Chief AI Scientist at Facebook, and also an ACM Turing Award Laureate and a silver professor of computer science, data science, neural science, and electrical and computer engineering at New York University.
François Chollet is the author of Keras – keras.io – a leading deep learning framework for Python, with over 350,000 users and 700+ open-source contributors (as of Q2 2019). Keras is in use at a considerable number of startups, research labs, including CERN, Microsoft Research, and NASA, and large companies such as Netflix, Yelp, Square, Uber, Google, etc. Keras has been chosen to serve as the high-level API of Google’s TensorFlow.
Jeremy Howard is an entrepreneur, business strategist, developer, and educator. Jeremy is a founding researcher at fast.ai, which is a research institute dedicated to making deep learning more accessible. He is also a faculty member at the University of San Francisco, and is Chief Scientist at doc.ai and platform.ai.
Karpathy is the Director of AI at Tesla and has worked as a Research Scientist at OpenAI. His courses are immensely popular and he is one of the most followed AI pioneers online as well as offline.
Demis Hassabis is the founder and CEO at DeepMindAI. He has completed his PhD in cognitive neuroscience from the University College London, and his doctoral studies focused on the field of autobiographical memory and amnesia. He has co-authored papers on the subject, published in nature, science, neuron, and proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). His work on the neurological connection between imagination and episodic memory was also cited as one of the “Top 10 Scientific Breakthroughs of the Year”.
Arvind Narayanan is a Princeton professor and he uses Twitter to share his research & commentary on surveillance capitalism, infosec, cryptocurrencies, AI ethics, tech policy, & academic life.
What can be better news feeder than the ones that has created the news itself? Google has been spearheading AI research over the past decade. This handle updates its followers with all the advancements in the state-of-the-art in many ML domains.
Fridman is a machine learning researcher who works on autonomous vehicles and human-centred AI. His podcast, where he interviews great minds of AI, has gained great traction owing to its high-quality content. He brings the same flavour and insights to his twitter account as well.
Facebook AI twitter handle updates their followers with the latest in-house findings and other news related to advancing of ML and conducting open research.
