Professor Yarin Gal one of five Samsung AI Researchers of the Year


Professor Yarin Gal has been announced as one of five ‘Samsung AI Researcher of the Year’ award winners. The awards were launched last year to discover rising AI researchers globally.

The awards were announced on the first day of the Samsung AI Forum, an event which gathers leading experts to discuss the latest technology trends and research findings. The two-day event held on 1 and 2 November (KST) enabled participants to discuss applications of AI that will make a practical contribution to people’s daily lives.

This year’s awards went to Yarin, and also Professor Diyi Yang (Georgia Tech), Professor Jacob Andreas (MIT), Professor Judy Hoffman (Georgia Tech) and Professor Phillip Isola (MIT).

Yarin commented ‘I am honoured to receive this award, and I want to thank my students and collaborators - this award is really for them’.
