Congratulations to Assistant Professor Roger Grosse, named Canada Research Chair in Probabilistic Inference and Deep Learning (Tier 2).
Grosse is just one of 16 U of T researchers awarded a new Canada Research Chair by the federal government this spring. Another 12 researchers at U of T had their chairs renewed or advanced.
Grosse is also affiliated with the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence, among its co-founders. His research interests include compositional structure search, evaluating models and algorithms, the geometry of learning and inference and learning mid-level representations.
The Canada Research Chairs program enables U of T to attract and retain the best and most promising researchers from around the world. In addition to conducting research that improves our depth of knowledge and quality of life, the university’s allocation of 275 Canada Research Chairs significantly enhances its capacity to train the next generation of leaders in their fields through student supervision and teaching.
