Meet our machine learning makers


[MUSIC PLAYING] JEFF DEAN: I’m a Software
Engineer here at Google, and I lead the
Google Brain team. KATHERINE CHOU: I’m
the Head of Product for Google Brain and Health. SAMY BENGIO: I’m a Research
Scientist in the Brain team. SARA HOOKER: I am one of
35 residents at Google. AZALIA MIRHOSEINI: I’m
a Research Scientist at Google Brain. RAJAT MONGA: I lead
TensorFlow at Google. JASMINE HSU: I work
as a Software Engineer on the Google Brain team,
specifically the Brain Robotics team. [MUSIC PLAYING] AZALIA MIRHOSEINI: I
always liked math a lot. Like in high school,
pretty much all I did was solving the
mathematical problems. And I was looking at
them like puzzles. JEFF DEAN: I started
to sort of dabble on programming, mostly games
so I could play them myself. JASMINE HSU: As I
was a kid, I wanted to be like this mad scientist. I got this, like, scientist
kit for my birthday. SAMY BENGIO: I remember
at the end of my undergrad that I didn’t want
to work in general. So I was looking for
any ways not to work. And then I did a
master, and then a PhD, and then I ended up doing
deep learning research. [MUSIC PLAYING] JASMINE HSU: I really just want
to sit down and practice, like, languages and speak to
an AI conversationally. SARA HOOKER: Trying
to understand some of the links between
how we as humans interact with the world and how machines
do is my current obsession. JASMINE HSU: Another
thing is I really want an AI to be able to– when I, like, solo over piano, I
want them to be my backup band. [MUSIC PLAYING] AZALIA MIRHOSEINI:
Early detection of cancer or coming up with a
treatments that are actually effective. SAMY BENGIO: To minimize all
the imbalances in the world, whether it’s gender imbalance,
financial imbalance. KATHERINE CHOU:
Monitoring resources on the planet and
then also being able to help manage that
in an efficient way. RAJAT MONGA: It’s not
just about the research, but how we can use that
to improve people’s lives. [MUSIC PLAYING]
