Nando De Freitas Computer scientist
Nando de Freitas wants to understand intelligence and how brains work. His key areas of research are neural networks and deep learning, reinforcement learning, apprenticeship learning and teaching, goal and program discovery, transfer and multi-task learning, reasoning and cognition.
Nando is a strong believer in building artificial intelligence (AI) tools to improve health care, advance science and provide decision support systems for lawyers, economists, politicians, environmentalists and all sorts of people who are interested in improving the lives of every creature in this planet of ours. The price to pay for not developing AI tools to extend our minds so as to solve these complex problems is simply too high.
