Sepp Hochreiter

Deep Learning Pioneer, LSTM Investor, Head of the Institute for Machine Learning

Sepp Hochreiter is the head for the Institute of Machine Learning, LIT AI Lab and Audi.JKU Deep Learning Center at the Johannes Kepler University Linz.
He is a pioneer of Deep Learning and best known for the vanishing gradient problem and the development of the long short term memory (LSTM). LSTMs have emerged as the best-performing techniques in speech and language processing where they achieved several benchmark records. His current research projects include Deep Learning for drug design, for text and language analysis, for vision, and in particular for autonomous driving.
