Assoc Prof Xavier Bresson
Assoc Prof Xavier Bresson
A/Prof Xavier Bresson is an international leader in the field of deep learning. Particularly, he co-pioneered a new machine learning technology called graph neural networks (GNN), which combines graph theory and neural network techniques to tackle complex data domains. He has organised several international conferences and tutorials on graph deep learning such as the recent UCLA’21 workshop on “Deep Learning and Combinatorial Optimization”, the MLSys’21 workshop on “Graph Neural Networks and Systems”, the UCLA’19 workshop on “New Deep Learning Techniques”, and the NeurIPS’17, CVPR’17 and SIAM’18 tutorials on “Geometric Deep Learning on Graphs and Manifolds”. He has been a speaker at the top machine learning conferences KDD’21, AAAI’21, ICLR’20 and ICML’20. In 2002, he co-developed with Turing award winner Yoshua Bengio a new class of expressive GNN. He has published more than 70 peer-reviewed articles, which have been cited 13,500+.
A/Prof Bresson has been the main lecturer of undergraduate deep learning courses since 2015 at EPFL, NTU and NUS, and has received outstanding evaluations for his teaching material and engaging style. He has also taught graduate courses on advanced deep learning at NUS and was a guest lecturer for Turing award winner Yann LeCun’s course at NYU. He has provided industrial short courses on AI and Deep Learning to Fortune 500 companies s.a. Deloitte, UnitedHealth and university alumni training centres at UCLA, EPFL, and NTU.
