On July 17 at 1:15 pm EDT, Dr. Greg Corrado, Distinguished Scientist and the Senior Director of the Research & Innovations division of Google Health, will give a 30-minute video talk to the Princeton community on research and AI/ML at Google Health.

As a co-founder of the Google Brain Team, Corrado helped spearhead Google’s expansive use of deep learning across dozens of products and services. Now focused on healthcare as the single greatest opportunity to apply AI for the public good, he oversees research in genomics, clinical predictions, medical image interpretation, and novel sensors. Previously, Corrado worked for decades at the nexus of artificial intelligence and computational neuroscience, and has published in fields ranging from behavioral economics, to particle physics, to natural language understanding. Before coming to Google, he worked at IBM Research on neuromorphic silicon devices and large-scale neural simulations.  He did his graduate studies in both Neuroscience and in Computer Science at Stanford University, and his undergraduate work in Physics at Princeton University.

 

This presentation is open only to Princeton faculty, grad students and post-docs. Slots are limited for this presentation. If you would like to attend, please email Chip Hay in Corporate Engagement at  rh12@princeton.edu.
