This week I talk to Yann Lecun, one of the brightest minds in machine learning today. Yann's work lies behind some of the most critical AI applications, most notably computer vision systems that power everything from face recognition software to self-driving cars. He recently won the Turing Award, the highest prize in computer science. We talked about Yann's first computer, about how music led him into computer science, and about his work on self-supervised learning, which he believes will take us to human-level intelligence in machines.
