Yann LeCun

Yann LeCun

Professor Yann LeCun (born 1960) is a computer scientist and "Director of AI Research at Facebook" with contributions in machine learning, computer vision, mobile robotics and computational neuroscience. He is well known for his work on optical character recognition and computer vision using convolutional neural networks (CNN), and is a founding father of convolutional nets.

He is also one of the main creators of the DjVu image compression technology (together with LΓ©on Bottou and Patrick Haffner). He co-developed the Lush programming language with LΓ©on Bottou.

Professor Yann LeCun, Director of AI Research at Facebook, sat down for a fireside chat at December 2014's edition of Data Driven NYC to discuss deep learning and the future of artificial intelligence. Data Driven NYC is a monthly event covering Big Data and data-driven products and startups, hosted by Matt Turck, partner at FirstMark Capital.

We think Yann should be more widely known and hopefully this page will contribute to that.

Interest in Yann LeCun Over Time

Interest in Professor LeCun is steadily growing, rightly so, and most notably the interest in China is very high.
