U of T, Vector Institute create new deep learning faculty positions in honour of Geoffrey Hinton

The University of Toronto is creating three new tenure-stream faculty positions in deep learning, a sub-discipline of artificial intelligence (AI), in recognition of University Professor Emeritus Geoffrey Hinton winning the prestigious A.M. Turing Award earlier this year.

The positions were announced Wednesday as part of a Deep Learning Symposium organized by the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence, where Hinton is chief scientific adviser. Deep learning is a form of AI that uses neural networks, modelled on the network of neurons in the human brain, to learn and make decisions.
