Yoshua Bengio will also receive the 2022 Pierre Devijver Award for his work on statistical pattern recognition
Yoshua Bengio is no stranger to reaching new career heights.
As of 2022, he is the computer scientist with the world’s highest h-index, which measures the productivity and citation impact of scholarly publications. He has received a number of awards and titles, including the 2018 A.M. Turing Award, often referred to as the Nobel Prize of computing.
Founder and scientific director of Mila – Quebec AI Institute in Montreal, a professor of computer science and operational research at Université de Montréal, and a leading expert on artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning, Bengio says he still loves doing fundamental research.
That’s why he’s delighted to be visiting Concordia at the end of month to deliver a keynote address and receive recognition from his peers.
Bengio will also receive the Pierre Devijver Award from the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).
