Olivier Mastropietro

It all started with the rocky adventures of an undergraduate degree in physics. After taking a peek at the universe (and also at the glorious Trans-Siberian), I went on to do a major in computer science followed by a master's degree in deep learning studying generative models applied in computer vision from the Montreal Institute in Learning Algorithms (MILA).

Fresh from grad school, I joined ElementAI as a Research Intern, where I spent almost a year. There I used deep learning for video generation and for meta-learning / few-shot learning. After the internship, I proceeded over to researching amazing food. I bounced between Europe, eastern central Asia and North America. Until I finally returned to Montreal and joined Deeplite as Machine Learning Lead.

I have always been interested in compression throughout my computer scientist's life, and I wish to pursue it deeper to uncover its deep learning flavor. Interestingly at Deeplite, the challenge takes a twist to push this fundamental piece of information theory into industrial applications.

When not confused by science, I like to discover cultures and nature. Other than that, I have a weak spot for games, postmodernism ideas, and I try to survive in Brazilian jiu-jitsu classes.

Ahmed Hassanien

When people ask me where are you graduated from. I often answer - 72B Almanial st. Yes, that is an address, not a school name. It is my coach's home address, where I learned algorithms, data structures and problem-solving for programming competitions such as Acm-icpc and topcoder.

I am passionate about problem-solving, especially optimization, and that's why I joined Deeplite. Before Deeplite, I worked for two years at Element AI as an applied research scientist, part of the AI core team (Computer Vision). Even earlier, I was a research associate at QCRI for two years and did my master's at the Sony technology center in Stuttgart.
