Yoshua Bengio is Full Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research, head of the Machine Learning Laboratory (LISA), CIFAR Fellow in the Neural Computation and Adaptive Perception program, Canada Research Chair in Statistical Learning Algorithms, and he also holds the NSERC-Ubisoft industrial chair. His main research ambition is to understand principles of learning that yield intelligence. He teaches a graduate course in Machine Learning (IFT6266) and supervises a large group of graduate students and post-docs. His research is widely cited (over 16000 citations found by Google Scholar in early 2014, with an H-index of 55).
Yoshua Bengio is currently action editor for the Journal of Machine Learning Research, editor for Foundations and Trends in Machine Learning, and has been associate editor for the Machine Learning Journal and the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks.
Yoshua Bengio was Program Chair for NIPS'2008 and General Chair for NIPS'2009 (NIPS is the flagship conference in the areas of learning algorithms and neural computation). Since 1999, he has been co-organizing the Learning Workshop with Yann Le Cun, with whom he has also created the International Conference on Representation Learning (ICLR). He has also organized or co-organized numerous other events, such as the ICML'2012 Representation Learning Workshop, the NIPS'2011 Deep Learning and Unsupervised Feature Learning Workshop, the NIPS'2010 Deep Learning and Unsupervised Feature Learning Workshop, the ICML'2009 Workshop on Learning Feature Hierarchies and the NIPS'2007 Deep Learning Workshop.
