Richard Socher is the Chief Scientist at Salesforce and one of the leading researchers in deep learning and natural language processing as an adjunct professor at Stanford University’s Department of Computer Science.

In this video he presents at our recent AirTree Speaker Series event in partnership with the Melbourne ML/AI community.

First up, Richard takes us through his team’s recent research on the Natural Language Decathlon: Multitask Learning as Question Answering (, a new paradigm for natural language learning that casts all tasks as question answering over a context.

Then he sits down with John Henderson, one of the partners at AirTree Ventures, to talk about the global landscape for AI including recent big milestones, what’s hype vs reality, and what the opportunities are for start-ups in the space.
