As a Venture Partner with deep expertise in artificial intelligence, Alex focuses on applications of this emerging technology to a wide range of problems.

His 2012 paper on “AlexNet,” now with more than 51,000 citations, kick-started the artificial intelligence revolution that we are presently living through. In his spare time Alex enjoys learning to play piano and is trying to raise a well-adjusted kitten.
