Yee Whye Teh
I am a Professor of Statistical Machine Learning at the Department of Statistics of the University of Oxford, a Faculty Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute for Data Science and a Research Scientist at DeepMind working on Artificial Intelligence research. I obtained my Ph.D. at the University of Toronto, and did postdoctoral work at the University of California at Berkeley and the National University of Singapore. I was a Lecturer then a Reader at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, UCL before coming to Oxford.
I am interested in understanding what constitutes intelligence in humans, animals and computers, and the mathematical, statistical and computational foundations of learning from experiences.
What is Machine Learning?
Machine learning is all around us; on our phones, powering social networks, helping the police and doctors, scientists and mayors. But how does it work? In this animation we take a look at how statistics and computer science can be used to make machines that learn.
