ML@GT Presents AI at Facebook Scale with Facebook VP of AI Jerome Pesenti

Facebook VP of AI Jerome Pesenti and colleagues will be on campus to discuss how Facebook uses AI across its family of apps and give more details about the new class being offered by Georgia Tech and Facebook. 

Pesenti will cover how Facebook uses AI across its family of apps to benefit billions of people, some of the challenges associated with deploying AI at this scale, and the innovations the company uses to address those challenges.

Pesenti's talk will be followed by an info session on how Facebook Artificial Intelligence and Georgia Tech are teaming up in Spring 2020 to co-teach the upcoming CS 4803DL/7643 Deep Learning course. 

Deep learning is transforming the world and we want to invite diverse students of all backgrounds to enroll. Come meet the Facebook instructors and team behind this new initiative. We are committed to building a more diverse AI field and we’re excited to connect with Georgia Tech students this December.
