Roland Memisevic

Assistant Professor, University of Montreal

I am an assistant professor in computer science at the MILA machine learning institute, University of Montreal, Canada. My research interests are in Deep Learning and AI.

I received the PhD from the University of Toronto in 2008 where I was advised by Geoffrey Hinton. Before joining the University of Montreal, I was an assistant professor at the University of Frankfurt.
