Artificial intelligence (AI) is advancing very rapidly. I’ve had a front-row seat for a lot of the recent progress—first at Bell Labs (which was renamed AT&T Labs in 1996, while I was there) and then at the NEC Research Institute in Princeton. I joined academia after these stints in industrial research. Now, I have one foot in each world, or at least half a foot in academia and one-and-a-half feet in industry. I joined Facebook at the end of 2013 for the purpose of building Facebook AI Research (FAIR), which was created because Mark Zuckerberg knew that AI was going to be a critical piece of technology for Facebook and for connecting people with each other. I spend most of my time at Facebook, but I still teach, and I have a lab with PhD students at NYU. I think the two are complementary worlds, and I find that very enriching.
