Amnon Shashua holds the Sachs chair in computer science at the Hebrew University. He was the head of the School of Engineering and Computer Science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem during the term 2003--2005. He has been a Professor since 2003, Associate Professor since 1999, and joined the Hebrew University as a Senior Lecturer in the fall of 1996. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computational Neuroscience, working at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), in 1993; his M.Sc. degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel, in 1989; and his B.Sc. degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel, in 1986. During 2001/2 he spent a Sabbatical at the Computer Science department of Stanford University.

His research interests are in Computer Vision and Machine Learning. His work includes early visual processing of Saliency and Grouping mechanisms, Visual Recognition and Learning, Image Synthesis for Animation and Graphics, theory of Computer Vision in the areas of multiple-view geometry and multi-view tensors, multilinear algebraic systems in Vision and Learning and primal/dual optimization for approximate inference in MRF and Graphical models. His work on multiple-view geometry received the "best paper award" at ECCV'2000 and the honorable mention to the MARR prize in ICCV'2001. His work on graphical models has received a "best paper" award category at UAI'2008.

Amnon Shashua received the first prize of the 2004 Kaye Innovation award , and the 2005 Landau award for Science and Research in the area of exact sciences - Robotics. Since 2007 he became the incumbent of the newly formed Sachs chair in computer science.

He is the founder of CogniTens Ltd. (established 1995, sold to Hexagon in 2006), and co-founder of MobilEye Vision Technologies (established 1999).
